Mobile computing has become very popular. Many people can access the Internet through mobile hosts. However, wireless links used by mobile hosts have problems such as narrow bandwidth and low reliability. To offer high-speed communication on wireless links, we have proposed SHAKE (SHAring multiple paths procedure for cluster networK Environment). In SHAKE, mobile hosts that are connected by a fast local link use multiple wireless links owned by each host simultaneously to communicate with hosts on the Internet. An experimental system was implemented and evaluated. In this system, however, not only mobile hosts but also correspondent hosts on the internet require special software for SHAKE. We propose a fast WWW access method with SHAKE (Web SHAKE). The feature of Web SHAKE is that it does not require any special software on Web servers on the Internet to use SHAKE. The feature is realized by an use of HTTP proxy server that works on each mobile host. We present the result of a performance evaluation of the Web SHAKE.
