Abstract

This paper proposes a load sharing scheme to maximize network bandwidth utilization in IEEE 802.11 WLAN networks using the SSID (Service Set Identifier) hiding. For this purpose, the proposed scheme keeps checking the available bandwidths of a group of wireless routers; selects the most bandwidth-optimal one; makes it visible to clients. Such that, whenever a client connects to a wireless router, only the selected one is visible to it while others are hiding. We implemented the proposed scheme with modifying the firmware of ASUS WL-500G wireless router and performed experiments. Experimental results show 35.6% performance increase in the bandwidth utilization compared to the conventional scheme.
