Generally, IEEE 802.11 DCF is used as a MAC layer protocol to form an ad hoc network as it enables one to configure a mobile host either in ad hoc mode or infrastructure mode. In this paper, we carry out an analysis of IEEE 802.11 DCF for an ad hoc network under saturation conditions. We focus on the average end-to-end delay, throughput, and the loss probability for single hop as well as multiple hops along a path from a given source to a destination. We study the effect of collision probability, probability of packet transmissions, the transmission range/carrier sense range, and the number of buffers in the queue.
