We currently have the tag with nearly 900 questions.
We also have the tag which has just 28 questions and no tag wiki.

On other sites, for example SuperUser, tags with these two names are synonymous.

Wouldn't it make sense to synonymise to point to ?

Well, technically wlan is a broader term than Wi-Fi which just happens to be a brand name... and, uhm well, describing the (by far) most widely adopted standard.

Interestingly Electronics.SE does not even have a . Unix&Linux does not synonymize with - though they have no tag definition for either, use it only sparringly, and often double-tag with .

In practical terms, since everybody is using Wi-Fi as a general term for wlan anyways, we probably don't lose much in synonymizing those two tags.

    Most of the 28 wlan questions were explicitly about wifi; many of them used both tags. WRT to the others, I did not see anything that was explicitly about something that isn't wifi. – goldilocks Feb 17 '17 at 11:54
