Most common wireless networking standard is?
The IEEE networking standard for wireless communications is 802.11. The most common types of 802.11 wireless networks and connections include the following (Higher Mbps = faster connection, Lower Frequency = longer range):
|IEEE Standard||Stream Data Rate||Frequency||Year Developed|
|802.11g||54 Mbps||2.4GHz and 5 GHz||2003|
|802.11ac||1633 Mbps (433 Mbps per spatial stream)||5GHz||2013|
Commercial routers have support for several IEEE standards (e.g. 802.11a/b/g, 802.11a/b/g/n, 802.11a/b/g/n/ac), since not all devices support the latest 802.11ac standard.

Local Area Network(LAN) and Wide Area Network(WAN) are the two standards that are most common networking standards.
