Computer network allows the sharing of data and resources in timely and an efficient manner. The devices used in computer network may be wired or wireless. Although wireless network provide more flexibility than wired network, but still to achieve fast data transfer speed most of the offices and colleges labs are still functioning on fixed infrastructure i.e. wired LANs (Local Area Networks). Wired LAN provides better results in terms of packet-loss and handover latency than wireless LANs.
