Abstract. The W-LAN Ad Hoc network tends to cause problems called ``Hidden Node'' and ``Exposed Node''. RTS/CTS mechanism has been introduced to mitigate Hidden Node and most of existing researches assume that RTS and CTS are sent at the same transmission rate. This paper describes a new method to improve the network throughput by adjusting the RTS transmission range. The simulation result showed that the proposed method achieved higher throughput in some degree.
