>>     I can't tell you the number of supouts we sent or the number of tests

>> CPE with different settings and then changing the APs based on their

>> finally said that we didn't have enough horsepower at the AP.  So, we

>>     So, for the savings of money on equipment, we invested a lot in R & D
