Ad hoc Routing, AODV, IP Routing


Recently, ad hoc networks are being studied widely, and most of them are intended to consist of wireless links among mobile nodes. But, in order to construct practical networks, such as a network supporting fire fighting, it is sometimes required to use wired links in a portion where wireless propagation is degraded and to use conventional IP routing equipments within the existing network segments. In this paper, we propose a method for combining AODV (Ad hoc On-demand Distance Vector) routing and the conventional IP routing over a network including both wireless and wired links. We describe the detailed procedure and the result of implementation of our proposal.
