So I have decided to start looking at 802.11ac routers, and I read this on the Qualcomm website:

http://qca.qualcomm.com/thewire/qualcomm-atheros-bringing-forth-a-new-paradigm-for-11ac/

I thought it interesting they were talking about the 802.11n launch, and the upcoming 802.11ac products, “As a result, this rush to market diminished interoperability and performance in the first products to hit the market.”

If there was issues with manufactures launching 802.11n early (and the poor customers who bought them), and the 11ac certification will not be ready till next year, why are some of the Router makers jumping the gun and releasing 802.11ac routes now?

If this was a problem with 11n, is it not the same problem with the current first 802.11ac routers?

Do you think it is better to wait till early next year and get a WiFi Certified router then?

Money, I Personally would wait. I don't see many home networks utilizing that much bandwidth at the present time.
