Keywords: Distributed Coordination Function | 802.11 MAC Protocol | Selfish misbehavior | CSMA/CA

In this paper the performances of two major mac layer protocols i.e. 802.11 and CSMA/CA is compared whenthe number of selfish nodes increases in the wireless networks. Selfish nodes try to acquire more bandwidth and largethroughput in compare to legitimate nodes. In this way it will be easy to find that 802.11 is better to use than CSMA/CAMAC protocol. The performances of both protocols determined by the qualnet-5.2 simulator which is very user friendlyand appropriate.
