Broadband Wireless Networks are providing Internet and other services to end users. IEEE 802.11, IEEE 802.16 & Wireless Mesh Network are regarded as the most important Broadband Wireless Networking Standards. The attacks and vulnerabilities in Broadband Wireless Networks depend on the types of setup, network topologies and network operations. The most important security risk associated with Broadband Wireless Network is DoS Attack (Denial of Service Attack). This paper is concerned with DoS attack issues related with Broadband Wireless Networks along with possible security measures to defend the network from these sort of attacks and future directions.
