Who Invented WiFi And When

WiFi (or Wi-Fi) was invented by Vic Hayes

WiFi was invented in 1997

Vic Hayes is Popularly known as the “Father of Wi-Fi” because he chaired the IEEE committee that created the 802.11 standards in 1997.

WiFi was invented and first released for consumers in 1997, when a committee called 802.11 was created. This led to the creation of IEEE802.11, which refers to a set of standards that define communication for wireless local area networks (WLANs). Following this, a basic specification for WiFi was established, allowing two megabytes per second of data transfer wirelessly between devices. This sparked a development in prototype equipment (routers) to comply with IEEE802.11, and in 1999, WiFi was introduced for home use.

WiFi is a wireless networking technology that allows computers, some mobile phones, iPads, game consoles and other devices to communicate over a wireless signal.

WiFi (or Wi-Fi) is short for Wireless Fidelity.
