Wireless Local Area Networks (WLAN) have experienced an explosive growth since the introduction of the IEEE802.11 protocol. The fact that it operates on non-licensed frequency bands has given way that a large amount of “hot spots” have been installed by operators that not always have the necessary expertise. In this publication we analyze the problem that arises in a multicell environment where no frequency planning has been carried out. Experimental measurements are performed in such an environment, by controlling parameters like activation of the RTS/CTS mechanism and frequency planning.
