Full Definition

Short for wireless fidelity; the same thing as 802.11 (but easier to remember). A wireless standard, for connecting computers to the web. Wi-Fi is gaining popularity because of it's free access and low technology requirements (especially in areas that lack DSL connections). Yet, download speeds are 100 times faster than a standard modem. There are about 1100 WISP's in the US.
