Wireless Mesh Network (WMN) has become an important edge network to provide Internet access to remote areas and wireless connections in a metropolitan scale. The wireless mesh network and the associated IEEE 802.11s standard have attracted an enormous amount of research in this field from the past few years. In the authors' proposed approach, they discussed multiple gateway fair scheduling process which consists of distributed routing and requirement tables and a propagation algorithm for scheduling at the gateways. Then a mixed-bias fair scheduling which is bias against different characteristics of the network. This technique biases against characteristics of the network which are detrimental to performance, fairness, or both.
