Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
There are a few wi-fi 802.11 protocols the most commercially used in Europe and the US are 802.11/a/b/g/n there are also 802.11 i/x/ protocols.There are other protocls in development and ones that have never been commercialised.
Korea uses a different protocol and there are between 11 and 14 channels used depending on which country you are in.
Are full channels with a bandwidth of 22mhz the rest overlap
Bluetooth protocols are similar but different and can cause conflict.
The wi-fi protocols have in the past few years become popular but there will still in future be more most probably and they will have to be "backwards compatable"--Their popularity is driven by the consumer and it still might be the case that "bluetooth becomes "obsolete"
The signal is sent out in "frames" which is a constant process relative to the code instructions,it can be known that the "Frames" can be dropped due to its not perfect technology however it is at the moment a good system although it can suffer from inteference from other consumer equipment(microwave ovens )for example.
