—With the development of IEEE 802.11 MAC (Medium Access Control) protocols, efficient utilization of wireless local area networks (WLANs) has become a very important issue. In typical IEEE 802.11 networks, the association between mobile users (MUs) and access point (AP) is based on the signal strength information. As a result, it often results in the(More)
—In order to utilize network resources efficiently and reduce regional congestion, associating mobile stations (MSs) with proper base stations (BSs) is of crucial importance in wireless cellular networks. There have been several load-aware proposals in literature, where most are classified into so-called closed-form approaches. In such approaches, each MS(More)
