We investigate performance improvements through TCP window size optimisation achievable when TCP Reno is used over a highly heterogeneous network, such as an 802.11b wireless LAN or a GPRS-based internet connection. Initially, our modelling focuses on a constant rate, buffered access link, based on a loss-less wireless channel and with a bandwidth at least one order of magnitude less than its fixed-network continuation into the core. We implement the model guidelines on wireless LAN and GPRS access links, confirming that TCP throughput can be increased by optimising the TCP receiver window size to the link characteristics, and more significantly, that there exists a broad range of near-optimal awnd values
