In atypical deployment of IEEE 802.11 wireless LANs in the infrastructure mode, an access point acts as abridge between the wireless and the wired parts of the network. Under the current IEEE 802.11 Distributed Coordination Function (DCF) access method, which provides equal channel access probability to all devices in a cell, the access point cannot relay all the frames that it receives on the downlink. This causes significant unfairness between upload and download connections, long delays, and… CONTINUE READING
