Project Background

The School of Electrical and Electronics Engineering has set up the wireless local area network and currently in use with restrictive to staffs only. The network (figure 1) is set up with point to - point configuration. Each station has an installed Minitar MNWAPB access point for the IEEE 802.11b standard. The external antenna of each access point was replaced by high gain antenna to improve the coverage area of network.

The total distance of network is approximately 31.5 km, which is a long distance WLAN.  This leads to the performance of network can be influenced by many different factors. For instance, environment factors like obstacles among the BSS, absorption, free space losses and interference of other devices operating in the same frequency. Consequently, improving WLAN performances are essential.
