In this paper, the author proposes packet control algorithms to be deployed in intermediate network routers. They improve TCP performance in wireless networks with packet delay variations and long sudden packet delays. The ns-2 simulation results show that the proposed algorithms reduce the adverse effect of spurious fast retransmits and timeouts and greatly improve the goodput compared to the performance of TCP Reno. The TCP goodput was improved by 30% in wireless networks with 1% packet loss.
