The use of wireless devices are flooding the network, thus giving rise to extensive data transmission. One of the main concerns is how to dictate the buffering of data so that throughput fairness can be achieved, specifically in the multihop wireless networks. The technique of buffering has to be based on the scheduling algorithms. Several studies on scheduling algorithms as a part of congestion control have been carried out, such as by Shagdar, Nakagawa and Zhang [1], Izumikawa, Ishikawa, and Sugiyama [2], and Giang and Nakagawa [3]. The Round Robin (RR) scheme is considerably simpler than other known schemes for achieving throughput fairness in multihop wireless networks. As is RR scheme, the main cause of concern is the delay that is been caused by high volumes of workloads at the wireless source nodes. It is therefore the purpose of this paper to enhance the network performance in wireless LANs by improving the fairness index and average end-to-end delay the through the scheme identified as Proposed Packet Reverse Function.
