The absence of a radio carrier reuse pattern in wireless LAN systems necessiti- es to apply a collision avoidance mechanism in order to manage all collisions that can produce on the medium sharing. Previous studies concerning cellular radio networks are in general focused on the basis of frequency cell partition- . We re-investigate this frequency reuse topic for wireless LANs where all nodes use the same channel and are randomly placed. Several measurements are presented to compute all radio parameters in a local radio network. Then, theoretical study and simulation results are introduced to deduce the distance that permits a complete carrier reuse by using a carrier sense mechanism.
