wireless means media is air. in this medium, we can't know collision happens or not ( i.e., we can't detect the collision ) therefore we are try to avoid the Collision it self ===> in 802.11 we use CSMA/CA

Wi-fi works on Collision avoidance since there is no phenomenon of detection in case of wifi . BUt in case of ETHERNET there exists a physical link when ever a station sends data it listen to medium to avoid the collision . But i case of wifi listiening  is not posible bcoz of no physical link .

So wifi works on CSMA /CA

Ethernet works o CSMA/ CD
