In this paper, we introduce an application-layer approach for enabling unicast and multicast multihop communication in 802.11-based ad-hoc networks. This approach uses MAC/IP multicast for all transmissions and does not require any changes to the MAC or IP layer of the nodes in the network. Integrating multihop communication functionality into the… CONTINUE READING
