This paper addresses the interference and load imbalance problems in multi-radio infrastructure mesh networks where each mesh node is equipped with multiple radio interfaces and a subset of nodes serve as Internet gateways. To provide backbone support, it is necessary to reduce interference and balance load in Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs). In this paper,(More)
The routing protocols meant for wired networks can not be used for mobile ad hoc networks because of the mobility of networks. The ad hoc routing protocols can be divided into two classes :table-driven and on-demand. This paper discusses routing protocols belonging to each category.

Mobile Ad-hoc Networks (MANETs) require a dynamic and efficient routing protocol that can responds quickly to network topology changes. Ad hoc routing protocols for MANETs are classified into: (a) proactive, (b) reactive and (c) hybrid approaches. In general, proactive routing is more suitable for a stationary network, while reactive routing is better for a(More)
Current on-demand ad-hoc routing protocols are not appropriate for wireless mesh networks (WMNs), because flooding-based route discovery is both redundant and expensive in terms of control message overhead. In this paper, we propose an efficient on-demand routing approach with directional flooding (DF), which is suitable for the WMNs with limited mobility.(More)
