Due to the low efficiency of legacy IEEE 802.11 MAC protocol, it has been the main bottleneck of wireless local area networks (WLANs). In this paper, we focus on multi-rate WLANs and propose an adaptive transmission control scheme, which adapts the transmission probability according to the number of active stations, transmission rates, and channel conditions. At first, an analytical model is built in terms of the proposed scheme to explore the throughput of the network. Then, by means of thedoi:10.1002/wcm.361 fatcat:dtqfc4dxrbhprlbowk35xda6jm
