Our focus was to determine a "slot" time for message forwarding. To this end, we model the system as a "Queue" where the time for packet forwarding is determined by slot, at different slot range for each relaying node. We also introduced one important reason of the poor performance is the close coupling between medium contention and network congestion. Our simulation results revealed how that the slot scheduling mechanisms are able to guide the multihop wireless network into an equilibrium state quickly. We also showed that maintaining communication among the relaying nodes was important for a stable MWN.
