Wireless LAN has very important property of LAN sharing make it advantageous in Ad-Hoc networks. In WLAN each node has Wi-Fi capability. In this paper we are analyzing such a WLAN network in which we increase load by increasing traffic and analyze the effect of increasing traffic, we also analyze the network for different routing protocols and check performance of which routing protocol not degraded on increasing load means which routing protocol is less sensitive to load.
