AMD has admitted that there are obstacles to its plans to use one of its single chips to allow home networking. The admission is an embarrassing climbdown for the chip company. As reported here earlier this year, plans that AMD, in collaboration with Tut software to introduce home networking technology have foundered on German prohibitions. It is not just Germany that is currently scuppering plans for the home networking market. Sweden, Italy, Luxembourg, Austria and Belgium all have rules which would prevent the technology taking hold without adequate safeguards. As a joint survey between AMD and research company Inteco points out, nearly three and a half million households currently have Internet access. What is more embarrassing still for AMD is that it did not appear to have researched the regulations governing the European market before launching the scheme at the Networks Show in Birmingham in spring. Now AMD is saying in a Q&A that it is developing the necessary filter designs for the countries in question. However, it is unable to give a date for the introduction. ® Click here for more gaffes
