This page is a collection of the listings of the IEEE's 802 groups of standardized protocols and methods. The information below was taken from, and links to websites maintained by the working groups. In some cases, the protocols and the development work were abandoned due to lack of support or interest or changes in technology rendered the work obsolete (standard was withdrawn).

These sites are way too technical for anyone new to networking--they make great bedtime reading though..

WARNING: THIS READING IS ONLY RECOMMENDED FOR EXPERIENCED PROFESSIONALS
