Mobile ad hoc networks are difficult to support QoS driven services because of their unpredictable and frequent topology changes. One of the important concerns is the reliability of routes. Although finding optimal path for MANET is an NP-complete problem, specific routing protocols sacrifice efficiency for the reliability. In particular, typical reliable routing protocols use redundant paths to achieve reliability. In this paper, we propose a probabilistic model for maximizing the reliability to use for the reliable routing path selection, trying to maximize the connection time.
