The IEEE 802.16 technology (WiMAX) is facing great challenges due to owning high mobility of mobile nodes, limited radio coverage of wireless devices, time varying nature of wireless medium. The transmission range of Base Station (BS) has a vital influence and must achieve the most economic case of energy in wireless networks. This paper investigates the effects of transmission range of BSs for two prominent routing protocols-Destination Sequenced Distance Vector (DSDV) and Ad-hoc On-demand Distance Vector (AODV) respectively over WiMAX networks.
