WLAN, based on the IEEE 802.11 standard has been extensively studied since its release. In addition to infrastructure access to WLAN, mesh networks currently attract a lot of attention. This comes from the envisioned advantages of wireless mesh networks, such as cheap installation costs, extended coverage, robustness, easy maintenance, and self-configuration possibilities. In this paper we focus on Quality of Service support for multimedia applications in WLAN-based mesh networks. Therefore, a dynamic bandwidth control mechanism is implemented on the network layer and the results show that high prioritized traffic can be protected from disturbing best effort traffic.
