I have an 802.11a card in a windows machine (not sure if there are any linux drivers yet...), and the speed is pretty good.  Certainly I can double click on a saved MPEG file on the fileserver and it plays find on the laptop.

However, range is limited to one wall (or floor)...  Two walls (or floors) kills reception completely.
