Contemporary wireless devices should be equipped with functionality for supporting Quality of Service (QoS) & integrity of the data. Unfortunately, most widely used Medium Access Control (MAC) protocols, IEEE 02.11a/b/g, could not satisfy these requirements because they do not provide assurance for fluent QoS. Misbehaving stations are the ones which tend to change the original data. Thus it is necessary to identify such misbehaving wireless stations and punish them to improve QoS of the entire system which assures originality of data.
