As the market for wireless local area networks (WLANs) based on IEEE 802.11 addresses no longer only the business market but also the home user, new demands for WLANs emerge. Multimedia applications require support for quality of service (QoS), which is addressed by the upcoming IEEE 802.11. For the satisfaction of the home user these wireless ad hoc networks must support multihop communication. The centralized prioritizing mechanism of the hybrid coordination function (HCF) relies on an infrastructure of hybrid coordinators (HCs) which may not be available in the home environment. Thus we provide a new decentralized reservation scheme to prioritize data in 802.11 and present simulation results.
