Several fractal phenomena, such as self-similarity and long-range dependence, have been detected in network traffic, with important implications on network performance. This paper describes a detailed study based on NS-2 simulations and testbed experiments that assesses how the characteristics of traffic change when traversing IEEE 802.11 networks. The most significant finding is the mitigation of fractal characteristics in the output traffic.
