Specific questions
from iLab
Guidelines
·
Answer each of the following
questions using the sequence and data from the iLab instructions. Answer all
questions in full graduate-level sentences.

1. In
your opinion, what is the purpose of our dropping the transmit power to such a
low level?

2. What
do access point connectivity statistics collected for the roaming station show?

3. What
do you think the Wireless LAN control traffic received by the roaming 11b node
when it is in the engineering building is composed of?

4. How
much did our roaming node reduce the total throughput in our heavily loaded WLAN?

5. What
caused this reduction in “goodput” on the 11g WLAN?

General questions concerning mixing 11b and
11g clients
Guidelines
·
Answer each of the following
questions using knowledge gained from the iLab, readings from the textbook, and
individual research on the Web. Answer all questions in full graduate-level
sentences and paragraphs.

6. Supposedly,
802.11b is “backwards compatible” with 802.11g, yet this lab demonstrates there
are significant problems with allowing the two to coexist. What is the primary
“incompatibility” between b and g?

7. There
is another mechanism besides RTS/CTS that helps the incompatibility. Explain
briefly the difference between RTS/CTS and CTS-to-self and when each is used.

8. What
is the “protection” scheme talked about in the standard? In short, how do 11g
nodes know that an 11b node is associating and how is CCK involved?

9. In
addition to the added overhead of the RTS/CTS scheme, what else causes the drop
in throughput you see? Are there other factors that can affect the throughput?

10. In
situations where 802.11g and 802.11b are coexisting, what steps might you take
to minimize the impact of the presence of the legacy nodes?
