In this paper, efficient data transmission methods in wire and wireless interworking environments are studied in the case of handover occurring. To provide efficient mobile data service based on TCP, the wire and wireless interworking module with analysis function of TCP frame header protects the duplicated transmission of TCP frames. Also, by using the forwarding mechanism of status information and buffered data in the interworking module, it is possible to recover frame loss occurring in handover quickly. According to simulation results, proposed method has better performance than conventional method in view of throughput and delay. The reason is due to the fact that duplicated transmission is prevented and data recover is performed very quickly because buffered data is forwarded without loss in the case of handover.
