Network coding is a new concept of combining the information at intermediate nodes, which can increase the throughput of the network. In this paper we apply network coding techniques to Wireless LAN (WLAN). Network coding is applied at the access node of a 7-cluster WLAN and the probability of network coding feasibility is arrived at. Further queuing theory is applied to analytically obtain the WLAN throughput both in the presence as well as absence of physical channel induced transmission errors. From the analysis it is observed that application of network coding to WLAN increases the throughput by 5 to 7% as compared to traditional store and forward routing.
