An analytical model is employed to solve a cross-layer optimization problem in IEEE 802.11 wireless local area networks (WLANs). Closed-form expressions for the optimum retry limit, packet overflow drop rate and overall loss rate are derived using M/M/l queuing model, and subsequently an adaptive MAC retry limit scheme is studied. Furthermore simulation results (network simulator-2) will verify the accuracy of our analytical model.
