How is Ethernet related to Wi-Fi and other wireless technologies?

By Ethernet Alliance

Wireless access within a home, business or carrier network, through IEEE 802.11 or IEEE 802.16 devices, is very synergistic with Ethernet adoption. Today’s savvy consumer purchasing home networking gear with integrated wireless access will find built-in Ethernet connectivity. As the wireless technology grows in market acceptance and adoption, Ethernet continues to remain its primary form of connectivity to LAN, MAN or Internet. Ethernet will grow to support the next generation of wireless technologies.
