We consider the problem of allocating two network resources (wireless bandwidth and backhaul router buffer) to support fair QoS in WLAN. We transform the QoS requirements to multi-resource demands and apply the DRF scheme to achieve fair allocation of the two different types of resources. We define a QoS utility function which measures the user QoS satisfaction. We briefly prove the property of resource-based strategy proofness of DRF, the corresponding mathematical expression is used to prove QoS-based strategy-proofness in terms of both resource share and user QoS. Finally our simulation results confirm the properties of DRF and demonstrate that our DRF-based approach performs better than several multi-resource allocation schemes with respect to both fairness and utility.
