Our objective in this paper is to examine the behavior of TCP in 802.11-based networks. The focus of this work is mainly on the effect of the fragmentation and frames retransmission handled at the MAC layer on the TCP end-to-end performance. The packet loss rate and the end-to-end delay of TCP connections are analyzed and evaluated. Some preliminaries… CONTINUE READING
