In this paper we present wired routers, for whom the sizing of buffers is an active research topic. The classical rule of thumb for sizing wired buffers is to set buffer sizes to be the product of the bandwidth and the average delay of the flows utilizing this link, namely the Bandwidth-Delay Product (BDP) rule. Surprisingly, however the sizing of buffers in wireless networks (especially those based on 802.11/802.11e) appears to have received very little attention within the networking community. Exceptions include the recent work in relating to buffer sizing for voice traffic in 802.11e WLANs, work in which considers the impact of buffer sizing on TCP upload/download fairness, and work in which is related to 802.11e parameter settings.
