WiFi Basics Part 2: Standards and Amendments through 802.11n

Thursday, March 26th, 2015

Here’s a quick overview of WiFi basics and WiFi history (and also a link to Part 1.)

Today, WiFi is everywhere: coffee shops, restaurants, retail, hotels, sports venues, etc. We can access it from our laptops, tablets, and smartphones. At home there may be game consoles, smart home devices, and set top boxes. I have several ChromeCast devices. They turn your TV into a wireless network device that you can stream movies from your computer or phone directly to the TV. It is so pervasive in our lifestyle that we don’t give it a second thought.
