Can you shed some light on the 802.1x/new hardware requirement ?
Since 802.1x is a port-based authentication scheme that extends it's
hooks into key management, I'm led to believe that it wouldn't
likely need new hardware. Isn't Cisco touting 802.1x using
their current cards ?

802.11a or 802.11g are new physical layer standards that will require
new hardware.

I'm not trying to pick an argument here, I think this is
the kind of clarification that forums like this are great
at providing.
