the current ns-2 implementation of 802.11 can be
considered representative of all b/g/a versions of
the protocol. As a
matter of fact, only the MAC sub-
layer is considered in ns-2. PHY
support is scarce in
ns-2, and the different b/g/a versions are usually
simulated by changing channel parameters, such
as the bandwidth and
I recently worked on a patch which tries to add some
realism to ns-2 channel modeling, available at
it/fiore, but PHY layer modeling
is still poor in ns-2.
I'm not aware
of any group working on such issue.
However, people working on ns-3 may
in such issue. You could try to post a message to the
