—Computer networks have experienced an explosive
growth over the past few years, which has lead to some severe
congestion problems. Reliable protocols like TCP works well in
wired networks where loss occurs mostly because of congestion.
However, in wireless networks, loss occurs because of bit rates
and handoffs too. TCP responds all losses by congestion control
and avoidance algorithms, which results in degradation of
TCP’s End-To-End performance in wireless networks. This
paper discusses different issues and problems regarding use of
TCP in wireless networks and provides comprehensive survey
of various schemes to improve performance of TCP in Wireless
