Due to the rapid expansion of Mobile Device, which connected through wireless network. The replacing of Internet Protocol version 4(IPv4) to Internet Protocol version 6(IPv6). This study has an aim to compare data loss rate, transmission delay, and throughput over a wireless network. The first step is identifying wireless networking standard in IEEE 802.11ac. The second step is upload example large file on IPV4 with wireless security protocols test. The third step is an upload example multimedia file on IPV6 with wiles security protocols test. The fourth step is analyzing the performance of the IPV4, IPV6 on the wireless network. The last step is providing result. The result is the IPV4 network is more stable over IPV6.
