[1] News.com reports on Synergy Research Group’s Wi-Fi sales report: Revenue for Wi-Fi was $2.5 billion last year, or 40 percent higher than the preceding year; it increased 55 percent in the fourth quarter of 2003 to $752 million (presumably over the previous quarter). Cisco, in the form of its Linksys acquisition and enterprise divisions, somewhat under a $1 billion of that revenue stream.

Linksys, D-Link, NetGear, and Buffalo are the top four consumer sellers, with NetGear bumping Buffalo from the No. 3 position. Cisco, Symbol, Proxim, and 3Com are the top four enterprise companies.

Reminder to all Wi-Fi companies: you’re all competing against Cisco.
