As it is know that WiMAX and WLAN are two wireless developing technologies. The researchers are working on the integrated scenarios of these two technologies so as to approach the maximum benefits out of these technologies. Therefore in this paper we are performing simulations over the two scenarios i. e. with wormhole attack and without wormhole attack. The evaluation is taken on three different protocols i. e. DSR, OLSR and TORA. The results are shown in graphical figures and according to them results are made.
