The Birth of WiFi — Thank you, Australia

Australian scientific invention — The invention of a new wireless data transmission system in the early 1990s led to modern wi-fi, the most popular way to connect computers without wires.

The prototype test-bed invented by researchers at the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) Invention leads to modern wi-fi.

CSIRO’s wireless local area network led to modern wi-fi and liberated the internet from dial-up. It marked a change in communication technology that is comparable to the invention of the telegraph in 1831.

The WLAN allowed instant contact with, and access to, information resources – anytime and anywhere in the world. It solved the main problem of indoor wireless networking – radio waves bouncing off walls and furniture, creating a distorted signal – by transmitting several signals over various frequencies simultaneously, merging into a complete signal at the reception point. more
