Application Layer Multicast (ALM) is an attractive solution to overcome the deployment problems of IP-Multicast. We show how to cope with the challenges of incorporating wireless devices into ALM protocols. As a rst approach we extend the NICE protocol, signifi cantly increasing its performance in scenarios with many devices connected through wireless LAN.
