IEEE 802.11 wireless LAN (WLAN) is the most widely used WLAN standard today, but it cannot provide QoS support for the increasing number of multimedia applications. Thus, a large number of 802.11 QoS enhancement schemes have been proposed, each one is focusing on a particular mode. This work summarizes all these schemes and presents current research activities. We are proposing in this work to adapt the concept of Quality of Service (QoS) issues in wireless LAN scenario. A deep comparative analysis has been done with leader based schemes and results have been verified using OPNET simulator.
