In this paper we consider variations in performance between different communicating pairs of nodes within a restricted network topology. This scenario highlights potential unfairness in network access, leading to one or more pair of communicating nodes being adversely penalised, potentially meaning that high bandwidth applications could notbe supported. In particular we explore the effect that variable frame lengths can have on fairness, which suggests that reducing relative frame length variance at affected nodes might be one way to alleviate some ofthe effect of unfairness in network access.
