With the development of wireless technology, Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) and mobile communication have been penetrated into all aspects of the people's life. Roaming is the general topic for Mobile Nodes (MNs). Because of the limitation of sending power and coverage, handoff is necessary and frequent when a MN roaming in WLAN. In this paper, the authors try to go through the different algorithms for handoff and select a combination of three emerging algorithms for dual soft handoff. Moreover, they go deeper into the actual workings of DSH (Dual Soft Handoff) with some results based on moments of handoff.
