It is well known that IEEE 802.11 provides a physical layer multi-rate capability, and hence MAC layer mechanisms are needed to exploit this capability. Several solutions have been proposed to achieve this goal. However, these solutions only consider how to exploit good channel quality for the direct link between the sender and the receiver. Since IEEE 802.11 supports multiple transmission rates in response to different channel conditions, data packets may be delivered faster through a relaydoi:10.1109/tmc.2006.137 fatcat:pretuzfyujfr7kkxoawuxamrxy
