Are there any 802.11a routers yet?

    I'm thinking about changing my wireless kit for 802.11a to keep out of
    the way of video senders and other devices that tend to interfere with
    b/g. Are there are 802.11a routers out there yet?

    I thought 11a kit was *more* prone to interference than 11b/g kit? I thought
    that was one of the reasons for it's demise.

    My understanding is that b/g uses 2.4GHz, which is shared with things
    like Bluetooth, video senders and DECT phones. 802.11a is up around
    5GHz -- I don't know if anything else uses that. Presumably the high
    frequency means that the signal is absorbed more easily, though.
