The concept of networking i.e. connecting multiple devices together to promote easy communication between the connected devices came to light with the primary aim of reducing the number of resources and to promote efficient use of the limited resources. This paper highlights the security and the various performance issues encountered in wired and wireless networks during data transmissions. The paper also shows how the transition from wired to wireless networks is essential despite the inadequate security of the wireless networks over wired networks and the outline of the various techniques introduced in wireless networks to make the data transmissions equally secure, if not more, as in wired networks.
