Wireless network Technologies tutorials

  • 802.11 is a set of standards for implementing Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN). They are created and maintained by IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) committee.

  • Most wireless network adaptor (NIC) and Wireless Access Point confirm to standard based on the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) 802.11 Specification.

  • Windows 8 support 802.11a, b, g and n standards. So letís understand multiple variety of IEEE 802.11 specification.


Wireless Standard

Transmission Speed

Transmission Frequency

Effective Indoor range


Up to 54 Mbps

5 Ghz

Appx.25 to 75 feet


Up to 11 Mbps

2.4 Ghz

Appx. 100 to 150 feet


Up to 54 Mbps

S Band ISM

Appx. 100 to 150 feet


Up to 600 Mbps

C-band and S-Band ISM

Appx. 300 feet



  • 802.11a standard came by 1999.

  • It operates in 5 Giga hertz and could give speed upto 54 Mbps.

  • Signals ware absorbed by wall and other solid object due to smaller wave length.

  • Effective range was 25 to 75 feet only.

  • Many users can use it simultaneously.

  • It resulted into less interference and better throughput.

  • However due to high cost, short range and non-compatibility with 802.11b standards, 802.11a was not could not gain wide popularity.



  • standard came around same time with 802.11a during 1999.

  • It operates in 2.4 Giga hertz and could give maximum speed up to 11 Mbps.

  • 2.4 band signals ware interference by other products operating in 2.4 range that include Microwave oven, Bluetooth Devices, Cordless Telephone and radio.

  • Effective range is approximately 100 to 150 feet.

  • However due to interference and fewer simultaneous users 802.11b standards, was largely replaced by 802.11g.



  • standard came around June 2003.

  • It operates in 2.4 Giga hertz and could give maximum speed up to 54 Mbps.

  • Effective range is approximately 100 to 150 feet.

  • Compatible with 802.11a and b standards.

  • 802.11g gives high speed, better signal range and more simultaneous users.

  • Due to above advantages 802.11g is widely used in public places such as Airport, Education campus, Coffee shops and Library.



  • 802.11n Standard was amended in 2009.

  • 802.11n standard is designed improve bandwidth by using MIMO (Multiple Input Multiple Output) Antennas instead of one antennas.

  • It can give highest speed up to 600 Mbps, Best Signal Range, Not prone to interference.

  • Effective range is approximately 300 feet.

  • 802.11n is compatible with 802.11a, b and g.

  • Due to high speed and best signal it is gaining popularity.

  • Note:-Though Windows 8 supports 802.11a, b, g and n standards but Wireless LAN speed depends upon capabilities of installed NIC adapter, Capabilities of NIC adapter Driver, WAP Wireless Access Point, Router capabilities, Distance and many more things.
