Executive Summary

The paper describes a simple approach to improve and analyze the throughput achieved by TCP connection over multi-hop wired and wireless networks that uses 802.11protocol. The paper emphasizes on two things; the method used in the paper is simple and can be used for performance evaluation of wired and wireless networks in general and the analytical and simulation results suggest that there can be a significant gain in TCP performance due to ACK thinning if the TCP receiver uses the delayed acknowledgement option of TCP. This is in accordance with other simulation based studies on similar lines.
