Using 802.11 for anything remotely critical is outright STUPID.
FCC regulations are such that these part 15 devices (802.11, cordless
phones, baby monitors) have no legal protection from interference from
licensed services (amateur radio, TV stations, etc). If I'm running a
high powered (10-100 watt) maybe signal at 2.4 ghz for amateur radio TV
and happen to be living across the street from an election center,
they're basically screwed. As a matter a fact, if their 802.11 is
interfering with my licensed operation, it is they who must shut down.
