In a practical application scenario, high data rates are required with increasing demand of wireless LANs. To upgrade the data rate of WLANs, the IEEE presented the IEEE 802.11g standard for providing higher data rates up to 54 Mbps at the 2.4 GHz frequency band. In this paper, performance of IEEE 802.11g standard is described with respect to WLANs. The review study of this paper provides the features of IEEE 802.11g by comparing it with previous IEEE standards to evaluate the efficiency of WLANs.
