In this paper we propose a new architecture and a novel media access protocol based on IEEE 802.11 for the home network. We use radio over fiber technology for our architecture where data multiplexing is considered in both wireless and wavelength domain. Our solution enhances the wireless bandwidth usage capability and can provide dynamic bandwidth allocation among users according to the user demands. Our proposed scheme also supports full range mobility for the users.
