We propose a novel bandwidth allocation/sharing/extension (DBASE) protocol to support both asynchronous traffic and multimedia traffic with the characteristics of variable bit rate (VBR) and constant bit rate (CBR) over IEEE 802.11 ad hoc wireless local area networks. The overall quality of service (QoS) will be guaranteed by DBASE. The designed DBASE protocol will reserve bandwidth for real-time stations based on a fair and efficient allocation. Besides, the proposed DBASE is still compliant with the IEEE 802.11 standard. The performance of DBASE is evaluated by analysis and simulations. Simulations show that the DBASE is able to provide almost 90% channel utilization and low packet loss due to delay expiry for real-time multimedia services
