It might be interesting to use one of the accellerated 802.11G systems
but it'd only give you UP TO 108 Mb/s half-duplex.
There are other options: 802.16 has some non-standard implementations
ranging up toward 80 Mb/s full-duplex and there are some gigabit
half-duplex (but *why*?) wireless services on the horizon.
6-8 processors isn't a real big heat challenge though, and the benefits
of having the hardware co-located and hardwired seems to outweigh the
benefit of dispersing the boxes into a bunch of different spaces.
