Summary: 
In this letter, we suggest a rate-based supervisory congestion control scheme for the ad hoc networks that use TCP as the transport protocol. This scheme makes it possible for the TCP sender to distinguish the causes of packet loss. In addition, this scheme guarantees the fair sharing of the available bandwidth among the connections. We show the reliability of our scheme by using the supervisory control framework and simulations confirm the effectiveness of our scheme.
