Two scenarios exist where a wireless network might not know if a frame was successfully delivered, that do not exist in a wired network. First, a weak wireless signal could mean that the sender may not be capable of transmitting and listening at the same time, and this makes collision detection impossible. Second, fading or the hidden-terminal problem could mean that interference occurred during the transmission without the sender knowing.
