"WiMAX and Wi-Fi are considered as the promising broadband access solutions for wireless MANs and LANs, respectively. In the recent works WiMAX is considered suitable as a backhaul service to connect multiple dispersed Wi-Fi 'Hotspots'. Hence a new integrated WiMAX/Wi-Fi architecture has been proposed in the literatures. In this paper, the performances of integrated WiMAX/Wi-Fi network have been investigated by using different ""Codecs"" proposed in the literatures. In this investigation two Wi-Fi hotspots have been connected to a WIMAX network. One of the Hotspots is located two kilometer from the WIMAX base station and the other one is located one kilometer from the same."
