    Default What is the difference between the current Wi-Fi standards

    What is the difference between the current Wi-Fi standards 802.11b, 802.11g, 802.11a and 802.11n?


    Also how do I know what my router will work with.

    Your router's box or manual will say.

    802.11a is unused for the most part, b is old, g is the norm and n is quick.

    My router will run WiFi (802.11b, 11Mbps. 802.11g, 54Mbps).

    Can I still get N and use it like G ?

    Yes, all N routers have backwards compatibility with G and some even B.
