Abstract : A lot of research has been done in routing protocols for ad-hoc network especially at the IETF in the working group MANET. These studies have mostly focused on the conception of routing protocols for mobile radio networks where the radio channel capacity is generally limited. The present article does not target the study of these routing protocols but investigate how carrier sense multiple access (CSMA) protocols can be tuned to optimize the network throughput. We buid two models of interference of simultaneous transmissions and conduct simple computations to guide our optimizations. The first interference model only considers the strongest interferer as the second one takes into account all the contributions. We use simulations to test our optimizations results. The result of this paper is a guide to optimize CSMA multihop networks; the obtained results show that a good tuning of CSMA protocols in term of carrier sense threshold and transmission range allows one to gain a lot of network throughput (up to 90
