Wireless network plays an important role in field of communication. Now a days people are always eager to access the data at any time of moment. The wireless network allows to access the Internet from anywhere at any time. The connectivity can be easily established via devices such as smartphones, laptops, etc. this paper simulates a campus WLAN using OPNET IT GURU EDUCATIONAL VERSION 14. 5. Depending on certain justified scenarios the evaluation has been done onto stations participating in the network. Also, performance of the network is measured on parameters such as congestion, delay, throughput, Traffic, Load in wireless environment. The paper discusses about how to handle the channel performance issues using different access mechanisms.
