Wuhoo! And *whew*. That's great news.

So what's the easy and quick way to test the 802.11a functionality?
Should I go ahead and get another couple of these puppies so we can do
direct tests between them? Or should we try and dig up a 802.11a access
point somewhere? Anyone out there have an old 802.11a* access point out
there?
