Wireless networks have experienced fast deployments and fast user population growth. Understanding the delay characteristics can help us to correctly evaluate the performance of wireless networks. In this paper, we will analyze the delay performance of single-hop and multi hop ad-hoc IEEE 802.11b wireless network based on testbed experiments. The influence of contention and RTS/CTS are investigated. Through capturing and analyzing all the on-the-fly IEEE 802.11b packets, we will compare and report our experiment results.
