A Wireless LAN (local area network) refers to a network where the devices are connecting to the Internet router through the Wi-Fi adapter, instead of the Ethernet.
The standard for the Wireless technology is based on IEEE 802.11 with more than four variations, depending on the frequency and speed.
Not needing a cable between the device and the router gives you the mobility to move in the area covered by the WLAN, which sometimes can be an entire house with more floors.
