    We consider achieving max-min fairness in 802.11e based multi-hop wireless networks. We propose an approach which makes use of the TXOP mechanism in combination with an automatic contention window size tuning algorithm based onchannel state sensing. Simulation results show that the proposed approach can provide a good approximation to per-flow max-min fairness and that this is achieved regardless of the active number of flows and when the channel is noisy.
