Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) As a scalable,
exible, and inexpensive network, we have studied the wireless Internet-access mesh network
(WIMNET) that is composed of multiple access points (APs) connected by the wireless distribution system
(WDS). WIMNET may su er from failures of links or APs due to hardware faults or network environmental changes.
In this paper, we propose dependability extensions to link/AP faults of the AP allocation algorithm for WIMNET in
indoor environments that has been proposed by our group. The extended algorithm nds AP allocations where even
if one link/AP is failed, the connectivity of the APs is maintained, while seeking the minimization of the number
of additional APs and the maximization of the performance. The e ectiveness of our proposal is veri ed through
simulations using the WIMNET simulator.
