The family of standards developed by an IEEE working group for wireless local area networks. There are currently several specifications for WLAN technology, such as 802.11, 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11e, 802.11g, and 802.11n. The 802.11 and 802.11b specifications operate at frequencies in the 2.4 GHz region of the radio spectrum and offer data rates of 1 Mbps or 2 Mbps for 802.11, and 5.5 Mbps or 11 Mbps for 802.11b. The 802.11a specification operates at a 5 GHz frequency and provides a data rate up to 54 Mbps. The 802.11g operates at 2.4 GHz but offers data rates as high as 802.11a (54 Mbps). The 802.11e specification includes encryption algorithms for added security to WLANs.
