By development and the spread of a wireless technology,the mobile ad hoc network (Manet) that can be easily constructed only with mobile nodes is getting much attention.However, it is difficult to control the performance of the entire network appropriately, as a network consists of individual communication nodes operating autonomously and there is no device that controls the entire network. Recently, a large amount of research have investigated the performance of TCP in Manet,and noted the problem of leading to a larger degree of unfairness.We have proposed diffusion-type flow control (DFC) as a solution for the extremely time-sensitive flow control required for high-speedÂ¿wiredÂ¿ networks. In this paper, we apply the approach of DFC to Manet, in which the exchange of information across the entire network is limited, and show a wireless traffic control scheme improving the fairness among TCP flows.
