Technology

WiFi
Technology allowing users to connect a variety of devices in a network, such as computers, game consoles, PDAs... without any wires. The main use is wireless sharing of a home high-speed Internet connection.
802.11g
WiFi standard allowing for data rates of up to 54Mbps using the 2.4GHz frequency band.
802.11b
Earlier generation WiFi standard allowing for data rates of up to 11Mbps using the 2.4GHz frequency band.
WEP
Security protocol for wireless networks using encryption based on a fixed 64-bit or 128-bit key being used only once, at the beginning of the decryption phase. To decrypt a transmission, each client on the wireless network must use the same 64-bit or 128-bit key. WEP is part of the 802.11 standard, with the goal of ensuring authentication (access is only authorized for those who know the WEP key) and confidentiality (encryption). A WEP key is composed of numbers 0 to 9 and letters A to F (example: A123BCD45E).
WPA
High level of security, specially designed for environments such as a small business or the home, using a pre-shared key.
