Here are some practical applications and implications brought about by the new innovation of the standards. The Past 802.11 began supporting signaling rates of 1 and 2MB using both Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) and Distributed Sequence Spread Spectrum (DSSS) in the 2.4GHz frequency. The combination of low data rates and the confusion with several other competing technologies such as Bluetooth and HomeRF probably slowed the acceptance of this standard and facilitated the development of the 802.11b standard. The Present 802.11b represents the current popular Wireless LAN standard, which operates in the 2.4GHz range and provides signaling rates at the 1, 2, 5.5, and 11MB levels. 802.11b's explosive growth has only contributed to the already congested 2....
