This letter derives the packet error rate (PER) in terms of the retry limit and the channel error probability in wireless local area networks (WLANs), when an additional number of retries is allocated to a block of packets to be transmitted. We prove that the lower bound of the PER is the dropping probability which is defined as the probability of any given packet being dropped after its retry limit has been reached.
