In this article, we study the performance of the medium access control (MAC) over wireless mobile ad hoc networks. The complexity in MAC design for wireless ad hoc networks arises due to node mobility, radio link vulnerability and the lack of central coordination. We briefly describe the MAC protocol for IEEE 802.11 WLAN in the ad hoc mode of operation. Some approaches to MAC design are presented.
