DCF(Distributed Coordination Function) of IEEE 802.11 WLAN(Wireless Local Area Network) MAC Layer apply to CSMA/CA(Carrier Sense Multiple Access with Collision Avoidance) for solution of collision when the station try to access at the same time. But DCF happens falling performance as increasing a number of stations. In this paper, we suggest algorithm that improved performance in congestion. And we compare DCF, DCF+ and proposed algorithm respect to saturation throughput, delay, collision rate and drop rate using NS2(Network Simulator 2) simulation tool.
