Let us first try to understand both these technologies.
"802.11a supports bandwidth up to 54 Mbps and signals in a regulated frequency spectrum around 5 GHz. This higher frequency compared to 802.11b shortens the range of 802.11a networks."
Due to higher frequency, it is difficult for 802.11a signals to penetrate walls and other obstructions. ...
