Streaming audio in computer networks requires a level of quality of service above and beyond the "best-effort" service that is typically provided. The need for enhanced QoS is even greater in wireless networks where issues of interference, security, roaming, and bandwidth constraints are added. This paper discusses QoS issues important for providing high quality streaming audio over wireless networks. In addition an overview of future QoS enhancements in IEEE 802.11e and HomeRF 2.0 is provided.
