In wireless local area networks (WLANs) often a station can potentially associate with more than one Access Point(AP). In IEEE 802.11, the station simply associates to the AP from which it has received the strongest signal during the scanning process. However, this may result in a significant load imbalance between several APs since some of them might be highly loaded while others are lightly loaded or even idle. Moreover, the multi-rate exibility provided by several IEEE 802.11 variants can… CONTINUE READING
