IEEE 802.11 wireless networks have received much attention over the past number of years. Still certain aspects of behavior of wireless networks have not been studied well enough. For example, understanding MAC layer packet delay distribution remains challenging yet. However, obtaining such distribution is highly beneficial for modeling QoS provided by wireless networks. This paper proposes a way of obtaining MAC delay distribution in case of single-hop networks. The proposed way is based on theory of terminating renewal processes and delivers approximation of good precision.
