Congestion in wireless network is primarily due to the lower bandwidth in the wireless portion of the network compared to the wired portion of the network. Extensive planning has to be made on the wireless network side as it is difficult to predict the number of nodes connecting to the network at a given period of time. In this paper we study the correlation of the packet lost segment flag with respect to network congestion. We design an clustering methodology to determine the status of access point for a given channel. This will help to plan the network better. We use the traces collected from wireless monitoring at the 62nd Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) meeting held in Minneapolis, MN, March, 2005.
