One of the defects may be one I’ve had a case open on for more than a year.
Auto Location Switching does not recognize 144 Mb/sec 802.11n connections
Fix ID: 1927272
Symptom: Auto Location Switching does not switch a client to a 144Mbs wireless connection
Solution: Added support for a 144Mbps wireless connection.
I’m hopeful that this will solve the location awareness issues when 802.11n is used. I’ve been told that wouldn’t be fixed until RU6MP1. But we’ll see what this does.
Another writeup of on the release is here.
