54g products can be certified today by the Wi-Fi Alliance for interoperability with 802.11b products. Broadcom is working with the Wi-Fi alliance to accelerate interoperability testing among 802.11g products.

What wireless network card to I need to use on my WLAN ?

In 1997 the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) created the first WLAN standard.

They called it 802.11 after the name of the group formed to oversee its development. this first version only supported a maximum network bandwidth of 2 Mbps today it has been improved to over 300Mbps using MIMO devices based on this first version, a comparable wired LAN on CAT5e Ethernet twisted pair cables usually is classes at a minimum of 10Mbps to a maximum speed of 100Mbps (often called 100/10Mbps)
Here is a summary of all the Wi-Fi versions and letter numbers upto the present day in 2010.

In 1999, the 802.11b specification was released for the the domestic market, supporting bandwidth up to 11 Mbps at the same time the 802.11a was released for the business market upporting bandwidth up to 54 Mbps it was much more expensive and signals had more difficulty penetrating walls and other obstructions so it was dropped.
In 2003, WLAN products supporting a newer standard called 802.11g it combines the best of both 802.11a and 802.11b it supports the same bandwidth as 802.11a of 54 Mbps (hence it is often called 54g this is the Wi-Fi standard), it uses the 2.4 Ghz frequency for greater range the 802.11g technology is backwards compatible with 802.11b, all WLAN cards will call this 802.11b/g
Some versions offer 128g which is 54g twice but only if the router will supports this doubled speed, the majority of all routers use a V.90 modem which will only support 54Mbps (aka 54g).

The newest IEEE standard in the Wi-Fi category is 802.11n (called MIMO technology) . It was designed to improve on 802.11g in the amount of bandwidth supported by utilizing multiple wireless signals and using antennas instead of one, it support data rates of over 100 Mbps upto 300Mbps and also offers somewhat better range over earlier Wi-Fi standards due to its increased signal intensity. All 802.11n equipment will be backward compatible with 802.11g/b networks.


Most internal WLAN cards are plug and play on the PCI bus, however more and more version are being provided as either a USB or PCMCIA version for laptops and desktops, this version below will work with all versions 11b, 54g and 11n upto 300Mbps ( if the router that you have will suport it.

The latest technology is called Wi-MAX is designed for long-range networking spanning miles or kilometers as opposed to local area wireless networking or WLAN. The other end of the Wireless technology spectrum, that split from 802.11b is called BlueTooth and works up to a maximum distance of 10 Meters used exclusively as the standard in Mobile Phone devices like headphones and short distance inter-connection to other phones and PC's.

OK! Quite briefly...WPAstands for Wi-Fi protected access. It is a standard security protocol implemented by Wi-Fi alliance to secure wireless computer networks. WPA standard is an advancement over WEP (standing for -->Wired Equivalent Privacy) standard that had some security issues... WPA implements most of the IEEE 802.11i standards and provides greater security than WEP.

In network settings for bd c6500 it says "due to change of a wifi policy , cannot support the tkip security type in 802.11n mode." What does this mean.

The Wi-Fi Alliance has a timetable for eliminating outdated WEP and TKIP security from certified Wi-Fi devices: The Wi-Fi Alliance is eliminating older encryption methods from the certification process for new hardware.
TKIP and WEP won't be allowed in new devices with the Wi-Fi stamp in a staged elimination over three years starting in 2011.
Anyone reading this should be well aware that WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy), the original local-link encryption standard in 802.11b, has been broken since 2001, and horribly so since 2003.
TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol) was a backwards compatible replacement introduced in 2003, and intended to work with older silicon that didn't have either the circuits or computing ability to handle WEP's real replacement, AES-CCMP ( AES-Counter Mode CBC-MAC Protocol). AES (also from 2003) is often called WPA2 encryption, although it's more particularly an encryption type that's part of WPA2.
In a nutshell, they're doing away with WEP and TKIP
The 802.11n standard only allows the use of AES keys.So you'll probably have to connect at 802.11b, or g speeds and settings. Might try to Right click on your Wireless Network Connection and select Properties.
Select Wireless Networks Tab
Enable the checkbox "Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings"
Click OK
Doesn't seem to bode well for XP users for the moment.
Hope this helps you.
Good luck

What is wi fi whats does it do


Wi-Fi stands for wireless fidelity. The term Wi-Fi, which is alternatively pushed by the Wi-Fi Alliance, a trade group that pioneered commercialization of the technology. Wi-Fi is mostly about connecting to the Internet without physically attaching your computer to anything. Mostly it's about using laptop computers.

A Wi-Fi enabled device such as a personal computer, video game console, mobile phone, MP3 player or personal digital assistant can connect to the Internet when within range of a wireless network connected to the Internet. The coverage of one or more (interconnected) access points — called a hotspot — can comprise an area as small as a few rooms or as large as many square miles. Coverage in the larger area may depend on a group of access points with overlapping coverage. Wi-Fi technology has been used in wireless mesh networks, for example, in London.

In addition to private use in homes and offices, Wi-Fi can provide public access at Wi-Fi hotspots provided either free-of-charge or to subscribers to various commercial services. Organizations and businesses - such as those running airports, hotels and restaurants - often provide free-use hotspots to attract or assist clients. Enthusiasts or authorities who wish to provide services or even to promote business in selected areas sometimes provide free Wi-Fi access.
Routers that incorporate a digital subscriber line modem or a cable modem and a Wi-Fi access point, often set up in homes and other premises, can provide Internet-access and internetworking to all devices connected (wirelessly or by cable) to them. One can also connect Wi-Fi devices in ad-hoc mode for client-to-client connections without a router. Wi-Fi also enables places that would traditionally not have network access to connect, for example bathrooms, kitchens and garden sheds.

Good luck and have a nice day.
rating the solution is highly appreciated.

What is a wpa key password

WPA is a type of security for a wirelss router to keep people out of the network without the key password. The password is used to log onto the router and allow the computer to communicate with the router and internet. The key is created using the wireless router settings menu and can be found on the same menu. If you do not know the key then you will need to hook the computer directly up to the router and use the router settings menu to find out what the key is.
