Summary: 
This letter presents a noise-robust sampling frequency offset (SFO) estimation scheme for OFDM-based WLAN systems. Mean square error of the proposed estimation scheme is derived and simulation results are provided to verify our analysis. The proposed SFO estimator has an improved performance over the existing schemes with a reduction of the estimation range.
