Decentralized medium access control schemes for wireless networks based on CSMA/CA, such as the 802.11 protocol, are known to be unfair. In multi-hop networks, they can even favor some connections to such an extent that the others suffer from virtually complete starvation. This observation has been reported in quite a few works, but the factors causing it are still not well understood. We find that the capture effect and the relative values of the receiving and carrier sensing ranges play a… CONTINUE READING
