Many enhancements of the ordinary TCP are suggested to solve the handoff and bit error rate (BER) problems that may be encountered by any wireless network, leading to decrease its throughputs, such as I-TCP, M-TCP, Snoop TCP, and Freeze TCP. These protocols concern their enhancements in solving one problem, either the handoff problem or the BER problem. In this paper, the MS-TCP protocol is suggested, it combines the features of the M-TCP and the Snoop TCP, which gives it the ability to overcome the handoff and BER problems in wireless network, the MS-TCP keeps the throughput of the sender before and after the handoff similarly, it has a local retransmission facility to retransmit the lost packets which caused by BER, and it is able to recover quickly from losses due to disconnections, to eliminate serial timeouts.
