This paper investigates the impact of security on the performance of WLAN. More specifically, it analyzes the impact of applying encryption used by the well-known security protocol wired equivalent privacy (WEP) on the data rate over an ad hoc WLAN, IEEE 802.11g. This paper also addresses the different issues related to the security protocols currently used in WLAN IEEE 802.11g and demonstrates how these issues affect the final results of the experiments conducted. The main result is that the… CONTINUE READING
