Medium access control (MAC) is a fundamental problem in wireless networks.

In ad-hoc wireless networks especially, many of the performance and scaling issues

these networks face can be attributed to their use of the core IEEE 802.11 MAC

protocol: distributed coordination function (DCF). Smoothed Airtime Linear Tuning

(SALT) is a new contention window tuning algorithm proposed to address some of the

deficiencies of DCF in 802.11 ad-hoc networks. SALT works alongside a new user level
