Default When WiFi started..

Cut a long story short, assignment in tomorrow, just doing finishing touches, does anyone know the year WiFi was first introduced, and the speeds they were back then?

Thanks for all help..

Check out this wiki, it has some good stuff about it. It says that
Quote:
The precursor to Wi-Fi was invented in 1991 by NCR Corporation/AT&T (later Lucent & Agere Systems) in Nieuwegein, the Netherlands. It was initially intended for cashier systems; the first wireless products were brought on the market under the name WaveLAN with speeds of 1 Mbit/s to 2 Mbit/s. Vic Hayes, who was the primary inventor of Wi-Fi and has been named the 'father of Wi-Fi,' was involved in designing standards such as IEEE 802.11b, 802.11a and 802.11g.
