Questions on the use of Wi-Fi (local area wireless computer networking technology). This tag is also used for generic "wlan" questions since they are commonly synonymous. Note shopping questions are off-topic.

Wi-Fi is a local area wireless computer networking technology that allows electronic devices based on IEEE 802.11 standards to connect to a network. A more general use of the term includes all wireless local area network (WLAN) even without complete Wi-Fi Alliance interoperability certification testing.

If you have a question about WLAN technology that is explicitly not wifi, look for or create an appropriate tag.
