The market for wireless local area networks (WLANs) based on Institute of electronics and electrical engineering (IEEE) 802.11 has grown constantly in the recent years. Neither 802.11 itself nor one of its extensions regards multihop communication or forwarding mechanisms. As the actual market growth is substantially based on the small office home office (SOHO) and home user market, future 802.11 ad hoc networks should not only support quality of service (QoS) -as it will be provided by the upcoming IEEE 802.11e -but also multihop communication. In this work, we survey a mechanism for relaying of data in 802.11 and give simulations results.
