Congestion control is a key problem in mobile ad-hoc networks. The standard TCP congestion control mechanism is not able to handle the special properties of a shared wireless multihop channel well. In particular the frequent changes of the network topology and the shared nature of the wireless channel pose significant challenges. Many approaches have been proposed to overcome these difficulties. In this paper, we give an overview over existing proposals, explain their key ideas and show their interrelations.
