We investigate the interaction between TCP and MAC layer in a wireless multi-hop network. Using simulation, we provide new insight into two critical problems of TCP over wireless multi-hop. The first is the conflict between TCP data packets and TCP ACKs, which causes performance to degrade for window sizes greater than 1 packet. The second is the interaction between TCP and MAC layer backoff timers which causes severe unfairness and capture conditions. We show that these effects are… Expand
Performance evaluation of TCP algorithms in multi-hop wireless packet networks
TLDR
This paper investigates and evaluates the performance of several prevalent TCP algorithms in this kind of network over the wireless LAN standard IEEE 802.11 MAC layer and shows that the Vegas version works best, and reveals the reason why other TCP versions perform worse than Vegas. Expand
COPAS: dynamic contention-balancing to enhance the performance of TCP over multi-hop wireless networks
TLDR
A novel algorithm, called COPAS (COntention-based PAth Selection), which incorporates two mechanisms to enhance TCP performance by avoiding capture conditions, and is shown to improve TCP throughput by up to 90% while keeping routing overhead low. Expand

TCP performance over wireless networks has been researched extensively. However, most of the related studies are limited to the cases with only one wireless link. The behaviors of TCP in theExpand
Fair Sharing of MAC under TCP in Wireless Ad Hoc Networks
TLDR
Using simulation, this study provides new insights into the interactions between TCP and various MAC layer protocols, including CSMA, FAMA and 802.11, and addresses the issue of fair sharing of MAC with multiple TCP flows. Expand

TLDR
This paper proposes a distributed modification of the IEEE 802.11 DCF, based on tuning the back-off mechanism using a feedback approach, and provides a theoretical analysis that yields a throughput bound with network coding. Expand
Improving Transport Layer Performance in Multihop Ad Hoc Networks by Exploiting MAC Layer Information

A new wireless congestion control protocol (WCCP) is proposed to efficiently and fairly support the transport service in multihop ad hoc networks and significantly outperforms traditional TCP in terms of channel utilization, delay, and fairness. Expand
TCP – AP and LRED over Single and Multiple TCP Flows in Multihop Wireless Channel
The Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) was designed to provide reliable end-to-end delivery of data over unreliable networks. In practice, most TCP deployments have been carefully designed in theExpand
The impact of multihop wireless channel on TCP performance
TLDR
This paper studies TCP performance in a stationary multihop wireless network using IEEE 802.11 for channel access control, and proposes link RED that fine-tunes the link-layer packet dropping probability to stabilize the TCP window size around W*. Expand
The impact of multihop wireless channel on TCP throughput and loss
TLDR
This paper studies TCP performance over multihop wireless networks that use the IEEE 802.11 protocol as the access method and proposes two techniques, link RED and adaptive pacing, through which it is able to improve TCP throughput by 5% to 30% in various simulated topologies. Expand
TCP Performance through Simulation and Testbed in Multi-Hop Mobile Ad hoc Network
TLDR
The work has been carried out to test the window size, packet size and path length of Multi-Hop Ad hoc Network, the TCP performance in a straight line, multi hop ad-hoc networks in two ways: the first one network simulator ns-2 and second one practical testbed, and the results that were obtained from both the models were compared and analyzed.

TLDR
Analysis of packet traces suggests that aspects of TCP's algorithms contribute substantially to the total loss rate observed on the Internet, and a more fundamental cure might make TCP less aggressive and more adaptive when its congestion window is small. Expand
