A solution for the connection of personal computers or workstations to a central station (represented by a mainframe or a server attached to a local area network) by means of a shared radio channel is presented. Issues regarding the multiple-access protocol are discussed, and an access scheme that is based on the independent stations algorithm (ISA) is presented. The necessary modifications of the basic ISA are discussed, and the overall algorithm is analyzed and tested by simulation. An implementation that is currently being developed is briefly described, focusing on the choices made for the logical link control protocol, the transmission techniques, and the interface software.<>
