The next year and a half will see big advancements in WiFi technology, with much faster routers (http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2012/01/gigabit-wi-fi-chips-emerge-will-power-super-fast-home-video-streaming/) to replace the ones you use today, and a new class of devices to support an incredible 7Gbps (http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2011/07/beamforming-your-data-how-wigig-will-offer-7gbps-speeds/) speed and clear a lot of the cable clutter (http://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2012/05/wifis-future-faster-smarter-and-fewer-cables/) out of your house.

The advancements will come in the form of two new technologies‚??802.11ac for whole-home routers using the 5GHz band, and 802.11ad for short-distance, high-speed transfers over the 60GHz band‚??that are at different stages of development, with the latter being on a slower track. The WiFi Alliance expects to certify 802.11ac products in early 2013, but the timeline for 802.11ad is a lot more iffy. The soonest 802.11ad products would be certified is late 2013, and even then the first certifications may not include routers or modems, WiFi Alliance Marketing Director Kelly Davis-Felner told Ars.

Many of the use cases for 7Gbps connections over the 60GHz band will be point-to-point, like streaming video from a handheld device to a TV or transferring tons of data without a cable. The ultimate goal is to have 60GHz connections co-exist alongside 2.4GHz and 5GHz ones in tri-band routers, but it's looking like the first 60GHz products won't include access points.
