I'm thinking on setting a wireles point of access for my laptop (home network , 100 Mbps, full duplex, switched, printers shared on a print server)
I reading about 811 g but I'm not shure if thats the way to go.

So far I'm thinking of an starter kit, Linksys wkpc54 g.

As for the stores I've checked The Nerds.net, they may not be the cheaper but they carry another piece that I'm lookin for, the Keyspan USB server.  Do they have a good reputation.

BTW I'm not in USA.

I just set this up for someone a couple weeks ago. It is very easy to set-up this kit. If you are getting this kit for less than a hundred dollars that's a good deal.

Here is the reseller rating for that company

Thanks for the info;

I've also checked the reseller you use, how ever they don`t carry the USB server and are about 1% more expensive on their prices. I'll have to check the delivery prices to make a full comparation.

He is not fro USA, in that case the best shop for you is Ebay - on many items is notice that items is shiped only to the USA but you should ask seller.

So far I've only got one answer to my question
Is 802.22 g a good choice?

As for shopping on line is a side line that probably I won't use.

I'll leave the question open for this day

802.22 is wireless broadband. It is not a good choice right now because there is a debate issue between the 802.17 group and forming a new group 802.22 debating the new technology should be used for television or internet. They have finally came to terms and will form a new 802.22 group in november based on the news.

If you are going to buy a 802.22 router or equipment, i recommend waiting until the technology is stable. The first equipment out on the market are not always the best ones. Would you buy the first VHS player? The first Mp3-Cd player? They weren't very good. Wait until the market is stable the the new technology is kicked off my big brands like Cisco's Linksys company.
