    WiFi works off of the same principal as other wireless devices - it uses radio frequencies to send signals between devices And to receive the information found in these waves, your radio receiver needs to be set to receive waves of a certain frequency. For WiFi this frequency happens to be 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz.

    Wi-Fi is an evolution of how a wireless telephone (not a cell phone, but the wireless phones w/base station) works.  The design intention was to offer an alternative to wired Ethernet.  If you want to know all the gory details get your hands on the IEEE 802.11 specification.  Wi-Fi sits at layer1 and layer 2 of the OSI networking model.
