This paper investigates rate configuration of the Expedited Forwarding (EF) class of Differentiated Services (DiffServ) when used with 802.11e EDCA. The rate configuration problem is presented, and several approaches are tested and evaluated in order to solve the problem. Results reveal that the contention window makes rate configuration very hard for the highest priority class (AC\_VO) in 802.11e EDCA. Our evaluations show that 802.11e EDCA is not able to conform to DiffServ's EF PHB specifications.
