This chapter seeks to present the dependence of Throughput on Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR) in IEEE802.11 WLAN Systems. High throughput and low delays are presented as the requirements for indicating good performance of WLAN systems. The multiple communication data rates specified by the physical layer of IEEE802.11 WLANs which vary depending on the SNR observed is shown to appreciably influence the throughput experienced by the users. Cross layer modelling principles which simplifies the process of estimating the dependence of throughput on SNR is presented. Recent research findings which apply cross layer modelling principles to model the dependence of throughput on SNR only is presented along with future research directions.
