eMail Reflector Request

Member Access


If you are not an active 802.11 participant, do not fill in this form, because your request will be denied. If you are an active participant in another 802 group,  contact the vice chair first. You can check whether you are a participant or not by looking for your name here.  If you are not listed as an "Aspirant", "Potential Voter", "Voter" or "ExOfficio",  you are not a participant,  and any request you make here will be denied.

Subscriptions to and use of these reflectors are subject to the current IEEE 802.11 WG Policies and Procedures. (Follow "Policies and Procedures" link from

This form offers the choice of adding or removing some or all of the task group reflectors.  Any request to add zero or more task group reflectors is also considered an implicit request to add the 802.11 working group reflector.  Any request to remove all reflectors also removes the 802.11 working group reflector.

Non-member Access

The IEEE 802.11 provides a public reflector,  to which all messages on its working group reflector are copied.  You can join or leave the public reflector by clicking here. Anybody may join this list. Members of this list are provided with read-only access (i.e.,  they cannot post to the list).   The public reflector is provided so that members of the public can observe the work of the 802.11 working group.    

There is a web-based interface to the reflectors,  which allows public read-only access at these locations:

Policy related to Confidentiality Notices

Many companies have a policy of putting Internet E-mail Confidentiality Disclaimers at the end of their emails. This is not allowed under IEEE rules of openness.

The 802.11 chair will remove your participation in a reflector if your emails contain the statement. If you are affected by corporate disclaimers, you can set up an external email account under your control. Email the chair to do a global change of address.

Below is an extract from the IEEE 802 Chair on this subject which details the policy.

802 Policy regarding restrictive notices

IEEE 802 operates in an open manner. To that end, no material submitted to IEEE 802, or any of its sub-groups, will be accepted or considered if that material contains any statement that places any burden on the recipient(s) with respect to confidentiality or copyright. This policy specifically includes e-mail.

Any material that has such a "Confidentiality Disclaimer" on it is not acceptable. The purpose of such a disclaimer is to transfer some level of responsibility to the recipient for deciding whether or not it is appropriate to disclose, use, disseminate, copy, post or otherwise distribute, the material.

IEEE 802 accepts no such responsibility. The most effective way for 802 to decline any such responsibility is to not accept material with such a disclaimer.

Correspondence with 802 groups will not be confidential. It is very likely that any such correspondence (in addition to being discussed in open meetings) will be posted in the open portion of our web-site and thus will be disclosed, disseminated and distributed. Anyone who wishes to correspond with an 802 group must understand and accept this as a condition of sending us any documentation. Inclusion of any restrictive notice is contrary to, and negates, any indication of acceptance of the IEEE 802 policy of openness.

Copyrighted works may be accepted as submissions for inclusions in drafts only with an appropriate release. Copyrighted works may be referenced in drafts and presentations if they are available on reasonable and non-discriminatory terms.
