Intel Plans Wireless Push Onto Desktops

Intel Corp. is building into a forthcoming microchip an ability to let desktop computers act as a hub in home and office wireless networks, taking aim at the market for stand-alone wireless access points. “While the move could simplify the process of setting up the networks, which use a popular networking technology known as Wi-Fi, it could be bad news for companies such as Cisco and Netgear Inc., which sell wireless routers used in such networks for between $75 and $150 each, analysts said.”
