Scaling laws were used for investigating the impact of the addition of a wired infrastructure on the transport capacity of a wireless network. A random wired point-to-point infrastructure was substituted on top of a wireless ad-hoc network in contrast to the cellular architecture. A square grid was also considered to which shortcuts were added randomly. It was found that the transport capacity in the network was determined by the time it took for packets to transverse the wireless network and not the access queue wait times in the wired infrastructure.
