I will discuss recent work in two related areas in 802.11 based on empirical observations and robust heuristics. The first concerns available bandwidth estimation, and the second rate control algorithms. The link between the two is the need to reliably isolate physical packet error from total packet error, which is frequently dominated by congestion.
