In this paper is the simulation based study of the TCP performance issues over wireless network. The paper includes description of various LDA algorithms with its strengths and weaknesses. The author has implemented LDA scheme named spike scheme used for discriminating between wireless and congestion losses at TCP. The entire discussion open up the grey area where an effort can be put up to further improve TCP performance particularly in presence of wireless losses. Transport layer is one of the core layers in network protocol stack.
