Part: VI Appendixes > The Flavors of 802.11

The Flavors of 802.11

This section briefly describes the variants of the 802.11 standard.

Note

It's perfectly possible for a wireless chip to run multiple flavors of 802.11. For example, one of the chipsets available to laptops using Intel Centrino mobile technology runs 802.11b, 802.11g, and 802.11a. This “three-way” Wi-Fi radio will choose the most appropriate 802.11 variant depending on the network it is connecting to and the preferences of the user.
