    The first one. I always pronounce it to rhyme with Hi-Fi as was intended. I do know some brits that pronounce it wiffy, but I'm not sure that's universal over there.

    Another vote for number 1. I've never heard it pronounced any other way.

    Wi (like why?) Fi (rhymes with sky, cry, lie, try, etc)

    I call it 'wireless'. It confuses oldies like my dad when I tell him I've been watching films on the wireless...
