  NETW360 Week 3 Lab: Mixed 11b/11g WLAN PerformanceExplanaion and !ackgro nd  Although the 802.11x standards are designed to work together to some extent, some of the compromises made to further this aim do, in fact, have their own prices to pay.During the data gathering phase, the person designing an expansion to an existing wireless network has to pay particular attention to inventory legacy systems that may e re!uired to e incorporated into the new network and to carefully document the conse!uences if any# of leaving such legacy systems in place.$ossile conse!uences are the point of this la where we will examine what happens to an 802.11ginstallation when a legacy 802.11 node ecomes a part of the network and then leaves. #b$eci%e %ompare the total achievale &'A( throughputs measured in a mixed 11)11g &'A( and in an all*11g &'A( to study the performance degradation in 11g &'A(s that support legacy nodes. T&# ' +iven a wireless network containing one or more commonly reported prolems, propose methods to diagnose and repair the network. Me(odolog) ã %reate a wireless 'A( where all the stations and access point are operating at the 11g datarate of - ps. ã ake the stations generate traffic that is heavy enough to saturate the network to measure the highest aggregate throughput achieved in that 11g wireless 'A(. ã ake all this traffic to flow in the uplink direction i.e., to a destination that is outside of the wireless 'A(# to prevent the access point eing a ottleneck, and therefore, reducing the total throughput significantly. ã %onfigure a legacy station using 11 $/ while not generating any traffic that will roam andassociate with the aove descried 11g &'A( for a certain period of the simulation. ã %ompare the total achieved throughput in the 11g &'A( when the legacy node is associated and not associated with the &'A(s access point.
