Two error control schemes for Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) connection on a wireless network are proposed that can minimize the degradation in radio link throughput due to retransmission. One scheme is based on the discard of TCP retransmission packets, and the other is based on the suppression of transmission delay fluctuation. Simulation results show that the degradation in throughput is reduced by 7.2% by using each proposal scheme when the frame error rate is 10e-3.
