In this paper, the authors review the efficiency of wireless ad hoc networks. The wireless networks efficiency deals with the bandwidth and the energy efficiency of the networks that depends upon the energy supply of the nodes. This energy and the bandwidth related to it are the major constraints to be considered in this paper. The network comprises of the nodes that consist of different channels for transmission purpose and these are the major areas for bandwidth efficiency. The energy concerned is the receivers processing energy, transmitter's energy requirement for transmission, loses in the form of heat from the transmitter devices.
