Abstract: The IEEE 802.11 MAC is liable for the scheme of channel accessing. It decides the performance of the WLAN and DCF is the central strategy. Stations that need to get to the divert may partake in a disseminated manner by means of CSMA/CA in the MAC layer. Packet collision can’t be totally avoided because of the nodes which are in scattered manner. MAC layer uses a BEB scheme for CA (collision avoidance).. Nodes are experiencing a collision in common channel in IEEE 802.11 and must have to backoff for a arbitrary time and selected consistently from CW. The contention window is maintained dynamically by BO algorithms. Network performance is decreased due to a sudden change in window size. Different existing algorithms for backoff and comparision among the algorithms are shown in the manuscript.
