To improve the performance of 802.11 WLAN systems under congestion conditions, an agent-based radio resource management system is proposed that can dynamically change an Access Point's radio coverage pattern. A low-cost four sector semi-smart antenna array is used for access points. With a distributed simulation system using Multi-Agent Platform, we present statistical results showing system performance. The use of intelligent agents and negotiations for in-door radio resource management is presented and discussed.
