Excuse me? We are talking about WIFI and not just wireless 'wan' links 
right? In any case, I suspect that the Aerohive 340 can do uber km too 
with a change to directional antennae and other stuff to boost signal 

BTW, if you are implying that the Aerohive only has FastEthernet ports, 
you are dead wrong. They have dual Gigabit ports, have done 20MiB/sec 
transfers on a single host, support up to 40 clients simultaneously and 
these were the results in the UAT. A bit short of their claim of 60 
clients simultaneously but that is probably human error...we did not 
have 60 persons to simultaneously click the file download but we managed 
to get 40 going at the same time.
