This paper proposes comparative study on the performance of various channel models. The channel model is also the factor which is considered in the network performance evaluation. As this channel model influences network performance their characteristic (modeling) should be well defined, but as in practical case it is not possible because of its in deterministic characteristics. That is why various channel models has been proposed for different environment such as Rayleigh fading channel for outdoor environment, Rician fading channel for indoor environment, deterministic channel model, stochastic channel model, etc. This paper enlightens about the influence of correlation in channel model and the characteristics of channel models present so far.
