"Wi-Fi" is a type of wireless networking protocol that allows devices to communicate without cords or cables. Wi-Fi is technically an industry term that represents a type of wireless local area network (LAN) protocol based on the 802.11 IEEE network standard. It's the most popular means of communicating data wirelessly, within a fixed location, today. "Wi-Fi" is a trademark of the Wi-Fi Alliance, an international association of companies involved with wireless LAN technologies and products. Wi-fi is commonly mistaken as an acronymn for "wireless fidelity" and often you may also see it spelled without the hyphen (wifi).

Its just another term for wireless. Your phone can connect to a home or office wireless network. Imagine that its a small laptop and its connecting to the internet...wirelessly.

3G vs WiFi - Functioning As mentioned above, 3G is a service that is completely provided by the service provider, whereas WiFi access can be controlled by a WiFi router located in a specific range from the access point. For availing the WiFi facility, you will have to visit a hotspot which provides a WiFi zone. Today, most malls, cafes, and major streets have WiFi routers for quick Internet access. For availing 3G, you need to get in touch with your service provider. 3G vs WiFi - Range and Signal The 3G technology scores well over WiFi with regards to range and signal. Since it depends on the mobile service provider, you will receive signal reception as long as you are in the network range. In case of WiFi, you will be able to receive reception as long as you are within the range of the router situated in the hotspot. Therefore, while traveling, using 3G access is more appropriate. However, 3G signals may drop if you are traveling away from metropolitan cities. 3G vs WiFi - Speed When it comes to the speed of both these technologies, WiFi is faster as compared to 3G. The maximum speed of the 'N' standard of the latest WiFi technology is reported to be 600 mbps. The data transfer speeds in 3G technology differs according to the kind of device and also whether it is stationary or in motion. The maximum speed on 3G network is considered to be about 2.05 mbps. However, if the reception is to be initiated on a cell phone in a moving vehicle, the speed can drop down to 128 kbps. 3G vs WiFi - Cost The cost of 3G access depends on the plan you have chosen from your service provider. When it is regarding availing WiFi facilities, you might have to pay the owners of the hotspots. WiFi at some hotspots is free, while others may charge a certain amount. Users of the WiFi facility at hotels and cafes can either pay using a credit card on a payment page hosted by the appropriate authorities, or can pay in cash for getting the network access code. Some hotspots are even code free, and you can directly access the web without the access password. This is some general information on 3G vs WiFi. If you want to know more about 3G vs WiFi, battery life is also an important factor to be considered. It is believed that 3G consumes more battery than WiFi access. When it comes to 3G and WiFi differences, remember that there are many complicated and technical details of these two advanced wireless communication technologies. Therefore, you need to choose according to your specific needs. so i suggest for wifi.

The name of a popular wireless networking technology that uses radio waves to provide wireless high-speed Internet and network connections. The Wi-Fi Alliance, the organization that owns the Wi-Fi (registered trademark) term specifically defines Wi-Fi as any "wireless local area network (WLAN) products that are based on the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers' (IEEE) 802.11 standards."

The term Wi-Fi suggests Wireless Fidelity, resembling the long-established audio-equipment classification term high fidelity (in use since the 1930s[6]) or Hi-Fi (used since 1950[6]). Even the Wi-Fi Alliance itself has often used the phrase Wireless Fidelity in its press releases[7][8] and documents;[9][10] the term also appears in a white paper on Wi-Fi from ITAA.[11] However, based on Phil Belanger's[note 1] statement, the term Wi-Fi was never supposed to mean anything at all.[12][13] The term Wi-Fi, first used commercially in August 1999,[14] was coined by a brand-consulting firm called Interbrand Corporation that the Alliance had hired to determine a name that was "a little catchier than 'IEEE 802.11b Direct Sequence'".[12][13][15] Belanger also stated that Interbrand invented Wi-Fi as a play on words with Hi-Fi, and also created the Wi-Fi logo. The Wi-Fi Alliance initially used an advertising slogan for Wi-Fi, "The Standard for Wireless Fidelity",[12] but later removed the phrase from their marketing. Despite this, some documents from the Alliance dated 2003 and 2004 still contain the term Wireless Fidelity.[9][10] There was no official statement related to the dropping of the term. The yin-yang Wi-Fi logo indicates the certification of a product for interoperability.[9] Non Wi-Fi technologies intended for fixed points such as Motorola Canopy are usually described as fixed wireless. Alternative wireless technologies include mobile phone standards such as 2G, 3G or 4G. Uses

wifi means wireless local area network: a local area network that uses high frequency radio signals to transmit and receive data over distances of a few hundred feet.

WiFi means wireless fidelity which means wireless network which could be trusted for a long term of service.this technology provides internet and networking by using radio waves(2.4 GHz). The maximum distance in which this technology can be accessed is about 300 km. It uses IEEE 802.11 standard protocol

Wi-Fi suggests Wireless Fidelity, resembling the long-established audio-equipment classification term high fidelity.To connect to a WiFi LAN, a computer has to be equipped with a wireless network interface controller. The combination of computer and interface controller is called a station. All stations share a single radio frequency communication channel. Transmissions on this channel are received by all stations within range.

wi-fi(wireless fidelity) is a form of wirelessly connecting electronic devices by which we can connect to the Internet via a wireless network access point.
Posted: 07-08-2011 @ 20:02:50
Wi-Fi (short for "wireless fidelity") is a term for certain types of wireless local area network (WLAN) that use specifications in the 802.11 family. The term Wi-Fi was created by an organization called the Wi-Fi Alliance, which oversees tests that certify product interoperability. A product that passes the alliance tests is given the label "Wi-Fi certified" (a registered trademark). A Wi-Fi device, such as a personal computer, video game console, smartphone, or digital audio player can connect to the Internet via a wireless network access point. An access point (or hotspot) has a range of about 20 meters (65 feet) indoors and a greater range outdoors. Multiple overlapping access points can cover large areas.
