A performance evaluation of a medium access control protocol for a distributed ARQ scheme in cooperative wireless networks is presented in this paper. The protocol under evaluation is the Persistent Relay Carrier Sensing Multiple Access protocol (PRCSMA). The protocol was designed to be easily integrated in standard IEEE 802.11 networks in order to increase their performance and to extend coverage. The main goals of this paper are to present and to discuss the performance evaluation of the PRCSMA under different network configurations. Computer simulations demonstrate the robustness of the protocol under different scenarios.
