Wireless mesh networks (WMNs) is becoming a promising new technology for extending coverage to far-flung rural areas. This it achieves by linking the various wireless LANS (WLANs) in distant locations thus providing a vital mode complimentary to the wireless infrastructure-based networks. The benefits of WMN deployments, however, come with certain(More)
Wireless mesh networks (WMNs) have become a better alternative for extending wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs) to provide network coverage up to the furthest of far flung rural areas. This has been implemented by using a meshed backbone network interconnecting the mesh access points (MAPs) that manages each of the WLANs. The routing algorithms use the(More)
One of the main objectives of transmission power control (TPC) in wireless mesh networks (WMNs) for rural area applications is to guarantee successful packet transmission and reception (SPT-R) with low power consumption. However, the SPT-R depends on co-channel multiple access interferences (MAI) including the effects from hidden terminals. In this paper we(More)
