    hi all

    i feel that i do understand about 80% of what these terms actually relate to and the logic behind them but can i be really cheeky and ask someone to explain it in simple laymans terms please? i feel i understand them but i obviously dont that well as i find it difficult answering a question on these topics when the answer isnt all that obvious

    thanx

    Well 802.11 is a set of standards for wireless. Such as 802.11a 802.11b and 802.11g, which all have different ranges and speeds.

    100BaseT translates into;

    100 = Speed of the network in Mbps (10, 100, 1000)
    Base = Baseband
    T = Cable used, T as in Twisted Pair

    This can then be change into say, 1000BaseT for Gigabit etc...

    I've just started the Net+ myself, but find that way of thinking works well for me! :)

    100BaseT is a cable that has a bandwidth of 100 Megabits per second

    802.11 is a standard at which the signal on WI FI is sent such as 802.11g transmits at 54Mbps
