i was wondering if anyone knew if apple is gonna have a 108g/n airport available anytime soon... since i would really love that instead of a 54g.. i currently have no airport/bt (baseline min with 512i) but my wet11 i use (wireless bridge) keeps taking a dump and could really use wireless.. i would prefer if the wireless be internal just so things aren't so cluttered..

What's your current router setup? Why don't you just get the internal wireless for 54G and call it a day? You won't really notice a speed difference in normal usage between 54G, 108G, and N. Maybe I just don't understand your question.

well.. i do media streaming and a LOT of data transfer between computers and 2 xboxes.. and have up to 5-6 wireless connections at one time.. wireless routers work like a hub.. you have 6 connections at 54g.. it's 54 / 6 which comes out to be 9 megabits per second.. there are no wireless routers out that work like a network "switch".. i would like to take advantage of 108g/n in the future and airports are 100 bucks.. just wondered if anyone knew if apple was going to jump on the 108 bandwagon.. or an affordable usb mac compatible 108g device.. i would really love to have internal stuff though.. too bad apple didn't go mini-pci
