Abstract: - The Wireless communication has been favoured by many promising applications that require packet delivery from one or more senders to multiple receivers. Notifications are sensitive to various types of attacks because the channels are unsecured in wireless. The wireless communication has a number of difficult issues. In this article we present the types of attacks and countermeasures and address the problem of channel congestion of interference in wireless networks. In these attacks, the opponent is active only for a short period of time, selectively posts of great importance. We illustrate the advantages of channel blockade in terms of degradation of network performance. Wireless networks are used in many commercial and military applications to bring data based on real-time events. Research in network security has produced several security solutions. And `it is observed that the rate of delivery of packets decreases as the number of nodes increases.
