Short for wireless fidelity and is meant to be used generically when
referring of any type of 802.11 network, whether 802.11b, 802.11a,
dual-band, etc. The term is promulgated by the Wi-Fi Alliance.

Any products tested and approved as "Wi-Fi Certified" (a registered
trademark) by the Wi-Fi Alliance are certified as interoperable with
each other, even if they are from different manufacturers. A user with
a "Wi-Fi Certified" product can use any brand of access point with any
other brand of client hardware that also is certified. Typically,
however, any Wi-Fi product using the same radio frequency (for
example, 2.4GHz for 802.11b or 11g, 5GHz for 802.11a) will work with
any other, even if not "Wi-Fi Certified."

Formerly, the term "Wi-Fi" was used only in place of the 2.4GHz
802.11b standard, in the same way that "Ethernet" is used in place of
IEEE 802.3. The Alliance expanded the generic use of the term in an
attempt to stop confusion about wireless LAN interoperability.
If you have a network in your home or office, there are several
different ways to connect the computers on your network together. The
article How Home Networking Works covers all of the basic networking

WiFi is the wireless way to handle networking. It is also known as
802.11 networking and wireless networking. The big advantage of WiFi
is its simplicity. You can connect computers anywhere in your home or
office without the need for wires. The computers connect to the
network using radio signals, and computers can be up to 100 feet or so

In this article, we will discuss two different aspects of WiFi. First
we will discuss the basic technology that makes WiFi networking
possible. Then we will discuss the hardware you need to create a WiFi
network, and help you understand how to set up and access a WiFi
hotspot in your home.
