Wireless fidelity, or Wi-Fi for short, is defined as “A term developed by the Wi-Fi Alliance to describe wireless local area network (WLAN) products that are based on the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers’ (IEEE) 802.11 standards.? (http://www.wi-fi.org/OpenSection/glossary.asp?TID=2#W). Wi-Fi works by using radio waves, which are produced by sending AC current to an antenna, so send alternating electric currents. The wireless adapter converts these electric currents into data. There are three main standards set forth by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers’ that we are going to talk about. They are 802.11a, 802.11b, and 802.11g.
