Determination of the position enables location awareness for mobile computers in any place and persistent wireless computing. In addition utilizing location information, location aware computers can render location based services possible for mobile users. In order to design and implement a technique to identify the source network interface card, a feasibility study should be done to keep the project within the budget; also tracking of new technologies will enhance the methodology of choosing these techniques. Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) is vulnerable to malicious attacks due to their shared medium in unlicensed frequency spectrum, thus requiring security features for a variety of applications. This paper will discuss a technique that helps in determining the best location for access points using GPS system, in order to choose the optimal number of them; which guide to localize and identify attacks with optimal IDS method and cheapest price. The other thing is to locate the intruder within the monitored area by using a hybrid technique, which came from exist techniques, by focusing on the advantages of these techniques and come with a new one to give more accurate results with less price by using available resources
