Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) Nowadays, IEEE 802.11 wireless local-area networks (WLANs) have been deployed everywhere by offering the flexible Internet access to users with low costs through installations of access points (APs) in network fields. Raspberry Pi has become popular and available around the world, due to advantages in costs, energy consumptions, and size. Since it supports the high speed IEEE 802.11n protocol, Raspberry Pi can be a common platform for the software AP that can be used in any country. Unfortunately, the built-in wireless network interface card (NIC) adapter in Raspberry Pi does not support the channel bonding (CB) to improve the throughput performance by boding two channels into one which is common in 11n. In this paper, we first study the configuration of the channel boding for the Raspberry Pi AP using an external wireless NIC adapter. Then, we investigate throughput performances through experiments, of a single-link communication between a host and the AP, and of the multiple-link concurrent communication between multiple hosts and multiple APs, with different adapters and assigned channels. The results for the single link show that the CB using an external adapter can improve the throughput, and the results for multiple links with up to three APs show that the combination of one CB and non-CBs provides the highest throughput when the channel difference between them is large.
