One of the key advantages of Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) is their importance for providing cost efficient broad band connectivity. There are issues for achieving the network connectivity and user coverage, which are related with the node placement problem. We already implemented 3simulation systems (WMN-HC, WMN-SA and WMN-GA) in our previous work. In this work, we present a comparative study by applying these 3 simulation systems for optimal distribution of WMN router nodes in order to provide the best network connectivity and user coverage. From the simulation results, we conclude that for small instances WMN-HC adwomen-SA have better performance than WMN-GA. However, for large instance the performance of WMN-GA simulation system is better.
