same here - no allowed buyer-installed stuff - I've thought about just
heading over on a weekend (or after the framing is done - probably the
night of the electrical walk-through) and doing the work - if they show
up in the morning and it's done, I can't imagine they'd do much except
in any case - still getting pricing on them running the conduit - the
more I hear from John the more I'll prob. just let them do it :)

802.11b is what I'm using and I'm fine with it - my pipe outside the
house is only 2Mbps now and I can't imagine it heading significantly
over 11 any time soon.
