Part: I Why Wi-Fi? > Understanding Wi-Fi

Chapter 2. Understanding Wi-Fi

In this chapter

  • The free spectrums that Wi-Fi uses for its transmissions

  • The various variants of the 802.11 standard that collectively make up Wi-Fi

  • Other (non-Wi-Fi) wireless standards and how they relate to Wi-Fi

  • Transmission speeds

You don't have to understand a whole lot about Wi-Fi to be able to make good use of it. Therefore, this chapter does not go into a great deal of technical detail about the various Wi-Fi standards. You'll find some of the gory, geeky details in Appendix A, “Wireless Standards,” if you really need to know.
