IEEE 802.11 refers to the set of standards set forth by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). More specifically, working group 11 of the 802 category for LAN/MAN technologies has been reserved for defining the standards of wireless local area networks (WLAN) operating in the 2.4GHz and 5GHz ISM bands. To ease the overwhelming increase of technical jargon, the term "Wi-Fi" has been adopted to refer to the IEEE 802.11 standard by the general public. It should be noted that the Wi-Fi alliance had first coined the term to define a slightly different set of standards, however it is still commonplace to use the terms [IEEE] 802.11 and Wi-Fi interchangeably.
