In this letter, we introduce a new proxy that effectively prevents unnecessary retransmissions from flowing over a wireless link on a path with sudden delay. The proposed Spurious Timeout (STD) algorithm detects spurious timeout based on the data and acknowledge sequence number. It responses to spurious timeout by filtering duplicate acknowledgements that can cause spurious fast retransmission. Simulation results show that the proposed STD algorithm performs better than, or as well as, other end-to-end mechanisms.
