This letter discusses the prediction of the time-varying bit error rate (BER) for a transmitting channel using recent transmissions and retransmissions. Depending on the predicted BER, we propose a maximum frame size control to improve the goodput in wireless networks. It is shown, using simulation, that when the maximum frame size is controlled relative to the time-varying BER the goodput of the network is improved.
