Since wireless applications have been widely studied over the recent years, the utilization of TCP under wireless environments is also an important issue. TCP design focuses on whether the wired networks perform well in wireless networks where links encounter an erratic error and result in a very low TCP throughput. This study investigated the TCP Vegas in a wireless environment, and used the queue length to determine the cause of packet loss, in order to reduce the unnecessary window degradation and improve the utilization of wireless network.
