Though WLAN wireless network has been widely deployed as the main split-flow deployment of the communication network, little study emphasizes its performance as WLAN protocols were only designed for the public communicating conveniently with each other. Actually that too much wireless access points assembling together will cause self-interference to the whole WLAN network. This paper investigates the Distributed Coordination Function (DCF) learn and the performance study of 802.11b networks. The authors illustrate the performance of its MAC layer and its fairness issues related to DCF. Next they propose the details which should be paid attention to in deploying network services.
