Abstract: Wired networks are increasingly being replaced by wireless networks due to its varied advantages. Open access networks are implemented in most of hotels, libraries and institutions throughout the world. Many security measures and protocols are adopted for securing the wireless personal area networks. The flaws in wireless networks and limitation of security protocols have increased the number of attacks as well. As a result a secure system has to be developed that can prevent attack to the wireless networks by identifying the location of the mobile device with only using the current resources.
