The success in the growing wireless standards can be measured by the achievement of Quality of Service (QoS) specifications by the designers. The IEEE802.11 wireless standards are widely accepted as wireless technology for wireless LAN. Efforts have been made over the years by the task group to provide adequate number of QoS enhancement schemes for the increasing numbers of multimedia applications. This paper examines the empirical performances of ad hoc wireless networks deployed on IEEE802.11 standard variants. A survey to some of the QoS schemes incorporated in IEEE802.11 wireless PHY layers were carried out.
