In this paper, performance analysis of the Wireless and Wired computer networks through simulation has been attempted using OPNET as simulating tool. For wired networks, the performance parameters like delay and throughput have been investigated with varying transmission links and load balancers. The load-balancing has been analyzed through parameters like analysis of traffic sent and traffic received. While in wireless networks the metrics like delay, retransmission attempts and throughput have been estimated with varying physical characteristic and buffer size.
