"P series"[edit]

This is a bit odd. All standards are first "Proposed" and use the "P" prefix, and then either are ratified and lose the prefix or not. This makes it sound like there is some subgroup that does "P series" ones which is not the case. For example, the 1900 and 1901 proposals seem to have been ratified, so this is doubly misleading. Can we just merge these together? Or would that make the list too long? W Nowicki (talk) 20:33, 6 July 2011 (UTC)

Now that I think of it, the other issue is that many are known by names instead of numbers (or in adition to them). For example, Wi-Fi, FireWire, DySPAN, Ethernet, etc. so perhaps that could be another parallel group, which might duplicate links but make it more usable. Anybody care?

802.3[edit]

I have tenatively added the various 802.3 standards to the navbox. On second thought, it seems the {{Ethernet}} navbox already covers it pretty well. Should it be kept? Here's a link to the corresponding revision. Conquerist (talk) 18:41, 16 February 2014 (UTC)
