Previously when wireless networking did not exist yet, people were awaiting wireless technologies with eagerness. Now 802.11n technology makes it a reality. Before 802.11n intermediate technologies were devised and people have had a good feel of how wireless technology operates. With this situation, several questions crop up. i. Are wireless technologies so suitable? ii. Are wireless technologies we have yet, suitable for ubiquitous computing to be widely deployed? iii. Does it mean that wired technologies have become useless? Do wired technologies have any place in this new era of computing? iv. Have the wireless and ubiquitous technologies become dependable for people as customers to adopt them as compared to dependability of wired technologies? This paper attempts to find the features required to make the ultimate aim of ubiquitous computing become dependable and reliable.
