Abstract Packet loss in 802.11 WLANs can occur either due to collision or a signal that is not strong enough at the receiver antenna. A challenging issue is the determination of packet loss cause once it occurs, which is a key for improving the performance of 802.11 WLANs. This report proposes and evaluates an algorithm to achieve this goal. The core of this algorithm is power level statistics at the receiver MAC. It learns from the received power levels of both correct and corrupted packets and decides whether a packet is lost due to collision or a weak signal.
