The 802.11 standards specify several transmission rates that can be used at the MAC layer protocol to adapt the transmission rate to channel conditions. Such dynamic adaptations can improve per-hop performance in Wireless Networks and therefore can have impact on the Quality of Service provided for communicating applications. In this paper we present a comprehensive evaluation of the performance of four rate control mechanisms used by the MadWifi driver in Linux: Onoe, AMRR, SampleRate and minstrel. The evaluation of these four rate control mechanisms was carried out in our platform for controllable and repeatable experiments.
