The field of WLAN has grown significantly in the last three decades. An interesting usage of computer networks is in offices and educational institutes were increased to exchange streams of multimedia data. These privately-owned networks are known as Local Area Networks (LANs) which come under the category of small scale networks, but researchers introduced the possible usage of wireless technologies for interconnection. This has resulted in the emergence of Wireless LANs (WLANs). In the world of information system, performance is a very important subject. It consists of the work which the computer WLAN system is supposed to do, and how do the authors judge whether is being done well.
