              1. It was first tried and tested NCR corporation/AT&T in 1991.

              2. It happened in Nieuwegein, in the Netherlands.

              3. It was called WaveLAN.

              4. It can drive you mad as it means that you can access the web anywhere in the house so you can waste most of your life sufring the web!

                4)Some unfounded rumours claim they cause tumors.
                realistically though theres such a narrow band available and so many devices that use RF, its a wonder we are all not insane trying to get it all to work together.
                Everythings broke once i've fixed it.

                  Why can they drive you mad? Well, the old ones would have been really rather slow and expensive and would have been maddening to set up.

                  Modern ones (IEEE 802.11) can be infuriating as signals are often weakened by various different things, either by things being in the way (walls etc.) or by other devices emitting frequencies that harm the wireless ones. This can result in internet connections dropping, websites not loading and games having high latencies. All of which are very annoying.

                          4) Wi-Fi reminds me of Hi-Fi which reminds me of John Cusack which reminds me of 1408 which scared me. Im the only person who can get from wireless lan connections to ghosts.

                            4. Its often frustrating as with poor quality equipment, the signal can often drop - leaving the user frustrated and without the internet momemtarily. Some channels overlap with other equipment and neighbours signals so some interference can occur and general security can be frustrating if someone has forgotten there network password or has left it unprotected without knowing.
