  • Researchers have long realized that TCP performance degrades over wireless links. Many solutions, including link-layer error recovery, have been proposed to overcome this problem. This paper studies how these solutions perform in a wireless LAN network environment. The experiments are conducted using off-the-shelf products, in a controlled way. In particular, we focus on Linux 2.4 TCP performance using a USB-based Compaq 802.11b multiport wireless card, as a case study. A multi-layer view is… CONTINUE READING
