Which WLAN IEEE specification allows up to 54Mbps at 2.4GHz?

A. 802.11a
B. 802.11b
C. 802.11e
D. 802.11g

Answer & Solution
Option: D
Explanation :802.11 Applies to wireless LANs and provides 1 or 2 Mbps transmission in the 2.4 GHz band using either frequency hopping spread spectrum (FHSS) or direct sequence spread spectrum (DSSS).
802.11a An extension to 802.11 that applies to wireless LANs and provides up to 54-Mbps in the 5GHz band. 802.11a uses an orthogonal frequency division multiplexing encoding scheme rather than FHSS or DSSS.
802.11b Also referred to as 802.11 High Rate or Wi-Fi, is an extension to 802.11 that applies to wireless LANS and provides 11 Mbps transmission (with a fallback to 5.5, 2 and 1-Mbps) in the 2.4 GHz band. 802.11b uses only DSSS.
802.11e A wireless draft standard that defines the Quality of Service (QoS) support for LANs, and is an enhancement to the 802.11a and 802.11b wireless LAN (WLAN) specifications.
802.11g Applies to wireless LANs and is used for transmission over short distances at up to 54-Mbps in the 2.4 GHz bands.
