In computer terminology the definition for networks is similar as a group of computers logically connected for the sharing of information or services. In this paper, the authors compared and analyzed the performance of wired and wireless network. In wired network there is only one routing protocol whereas in wireless network there are so many routing protocols like AODV, DSDV, DSR, TORA and ZRP etc. In this paper, they also carried out a systematic simulation based performance study and analysis of the two prominent routing protocols: (Temporally-Ordered Routing Algorithm) TORA and Zone Routing Protocols (ZRP) in the hybrid networking environment under varying nodes.
