Wireless multi-hop networks have recently been conceived as a networking paradigm. However, their deployment has been limited, mainly due to the fact that they lack fairness. In this research effort, we briefly review the state of art in fairness mechanisms in multi-hop networks and we propose an algorithm that tries to differentiate the traffic among the connections in a wireless multi-hop ad-hoc sensor network, so that the fairness is enhanced. This is achieved by an adaptive scheme, which
