In order to improve the efficiency of wireless mesh network transmission, this paper focused on the network coding technology. Using network coding can significantly increase the wireless mesh network’s throughput, but it will inevitably increase the computational complexity to the network, and the traditional linear network coding algorithm requires the aware of the whole network topology, which is impossible in the ever-changing topology of wireless mesh networks. In this paper, we use a distributed network coding strategy: random network coding, which don’t need to know the whole topology of the network. In order to decrease the computation complexity, this paper suggests an improved strategy for random network coding: Do not code the packets which bring no good to the whole transmission. In this paper, we list several situations which coding is not necessary. Simulation results show that applying these strategies can improve the efficiency of wireless mesh network transmission.
