General Information

Public read-only web-based access is provided to all 802.11 reflectors using the URLs shown above. In addition, public subscription to a read-only version of the main 802.11 reflector is provided. Use: to subscribe to the public read-only reflector.

Read-Write access to the reflectors is managed through a subscription process. Subscriptions to a reflector are subject to current 802.11 Operations Manual, which describes the definition of an Active member of 802.11 (i.e., an 802.11 member with the status Aspirant, Potential Voter or Voter; or a former Voter member who is in the ballot pool of a current working group ballot series).

Subscriptions for the non-public reflectors are requested the following form: Un-subscription is a performed using a link described below, and which is also described in the footer of all emails sent from a reflector.

For any direct access to, such as un-subscribing from a list or subscribing to the public read-only list, you will be asked to create an account if this is your first visit. If this is the case, follow the online instructions. Use your email address, and then enter a password that you can remember. Complete the form, and the system will send you an email to confirm, then once again follow the instructions closely. Accept the cookie, then you have completed this one-time process, and can utilize all the site subscriber functionality provided.

Access to a non-public reflector is provided for official technical business of the Working Group or a Study Group, or Standing Committee. WG letter ballots, technical discussions and questions, comments on presentations and documents, are welcome. The public read-only reflector carries a copy of the traffic sent to the "main" reflector stds-802-11.

The reflector identifies subscriptions by email address. It will only allow postings from a subscribed address. This can make it awkward to use email aliases such as as your subscribed address - i.e. only subscribe using an address from which you can originate email.

If you change your address, send an email to the responsible WG vice chair, who will perform a global update. If you change your email address (e.g., moving jobs) and do not update the system, it will eventually automatically determine that the subscribed email address is no longer functional, and will delete the subscription.

Confidentiality statements are not permitted (e.g., "This email is CONFIDENTIAL and may be read by the intended recipient only..."). If your employer's email system inserts these statements, you will need to subscribe using a personal email account that does not carry such a statement.

Commercial activities are not permitted. If in doubt, consult a WG officer before posting.

Subscribers who do not meet these rules may be removed from the 802.11 reflectors. Reflectors are not otherwise moderated.
