The focus of this thesis lies in investigating possible abuse of the standardized medium access protocol 802.11a within Wireless Local Area Networks (WLAN). By modifying the Contention Window (CW), a network can capture more traffic in expense of its rivals. The competing network scenarios are modeled by the use of Game Theory, applying simple and repeated… (More)
