In Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET), the wireless medium is shared by the nodes in the network, and the available bandwidth is the most important parameter for the QoS policy designing. The estimating method in IEEE802.11e based MANET is proposed in our paper. With the method of channel monitoring, collision estimating and backoff duration predicting, the available bandwidth estimating can be achieved with the distributed manner. Results show that our proposed estimating method is accurate.
