Wireless networks are very common today because of their flexibility, portability and ease of installation. Users working through wireless connections have to be aware of the environments due to the vulnerability of the infrastructure and various types of attacks that can be made by the intruders to compromise valuable and critical data. Denial Of Service attack (DOS) is the most significant attack in the wireless 802.11 WLANs. Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) and Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) security protocols are used to protect wireless network infrastructure against intruders.
