802.11n (formally known as IEEE 802.11n-2009) is a Wi-Fi protocol which operates in both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands. It is the latest Wi-Fi protocol that has widely available hardware that works in the 2.4GHz band but is superseded by 802.11ac in the 5GHz band. Maximum speeds provided by 802.11n vary between 54 and 600 Mbit/s depending on the number of antennas and the width of the channels used.
