Interchanges through PCs, laptops, tablets, and mobiles nowadays triggered the spread of remote systems administration to reach high levels throughout the globe. Security issues have risen considerably in Wi-Fi systems due to the unapproved clients and Wi-Fi programmers. Thus to eliminate conceivable security issues, WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) and WPA (Wireless Fidelity Protected Access) have been proposed in this paper. Both of these conventions are by large used to scramble the present information and data preventing unapproved clients and Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) programmers from decoding the information and hacking the Wi-Fi systems. Anybody within the range of the Wireless Fidelity system can connect to it with the help the Access Point (AP). In addition the Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS) system is contrasted with Wi-Fi Network for better execution in security.
