TCP utilization in wireless networks poses certain problems due to its inability to distinguish packet losses caused by congestion from those caused by frequent wireless errors, leading to degraded network performance. To avoid these problems and to minimize the effect of intensive channel contention in wireless networks, this work presents a new Hybrid ARQ technique for reliable and efficient packets transfer in static wireless ad hoc network. It is a combination of recent FEC based Raptor coding technique with ARQ based selective retransmission method, which outperforms purely ARQ based method. In contrast to most Hybrid ARQ techniques, which usually employ a byte level FEC, we mostly use packet level FEC in our simulations for the data transfer, on top of less frequent ARQ to recover the residual errors. Existing packet level FEC methods are mostly based on simple parity check codes or Reed Solomon codes with erasure decoding; in this work we use the recent raptor codes. We also introduce the notion of adaptive redundancy which helps to achieve better average network performance and to further improve the redundancy efficiency.
