Wireless Local area networks are used at a large scale in present world. A large number of devices communicate in a WLAN but the channels used for this purpose are limited which gives birth to congestion in the network. The main challenge in WLANs is the allocation of resources. Two types of TCP flows i.e., uplink and downlink exist WLAN, but with their existence at the same time the network service is somewhat biased towards uplink due which the downlink transmission flow suffers. In this research paper, we propose an optimization scheme based on the working of Artificial Bee Colony Optimization algorithm for dynamic allocation of multi-queue buffer for TCP flow in WLANs. The simulations are performed in MATLAB and the results are achieved in terms of throughput, drop packet and other parameters to prove the effectiveness the proposed technique.
