Abstract: In this paper, we consider two fairness problems (downlink/uplink fairness and fairness among flows in the same direction) that arise in the infrastructure WLAN. We propose a virtual queue management approach, named VQ-RED to address the fairness problems. We demonstrate the effectiveness of our approach by conducting a series of simulations. The results show that compared with standard DCF, VQ-RED not only greatly improves the fairness, but also reduces packet delays.
