Wi-Fi (IPA: /ˈwaɪfaɪ/) is the trade name for a popular wireless technology used in home networks, mobile phones, video games and more. Wi-Fi is supported by nearly every modern personal computer operating system and most advanced game consoles, printers, and other peripherals.

make access to information easier
ensure compatibility and co-existence of devices
eliminate cabling and wiring
eliminate switches, adapters, plugs, pins and connectors.

When it comes to Wi-Fi, there are two kinds of people: those who can't live without it, and those who haven't experienced it yet.

Wi-Fi is mostly about connecting to the Internet without physically attaching your computer to anything. Mostly it's about using laptop computers. Let's say you have a laptop computer in your house and you have a high speed Internet connection (Cable or DSL). Well, if you want to use it to surf the Internet you would have to physically attach it to your broadband modem to do that. But not if you have Wi-Fi. With Wi-Fi you can move around anywhere inside your house (and maybe even outside too) and still be able to browse the Internet.
