Wireless mesh networks (WMNs) are evolving to be the key technology of the future. As the WMNs are envisioned to provide high bandwidth broadband service to a large community of users, the Internet gateway (IGW) which acts as a central point of Internet attachment for the mesh routers, it is likely to be a potential bottleneck because of its limited wireless link capacity. We propose a novel technique that elegantly balances the load among the different IGWs in a WMN. We switch the point of… CONTINUE READING
