Wireless networks applications enabled the people to communicate, from anywhere in the globe. Performance of reliable Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) degrades in wireless networks due to its inability to detect and recover losses due to unreliable nature of wireless network such as signal fading, low bandwidth, bit error rate, etc. This results in low utilization of available bandwidth, unnecessary retransmission and low throughput. The authors propose Sender Oriented Loss Recovery Technique (SOLRT) to detect and recover packets lost in network due to congestion and link error. Link error is detected using timeout.
