Wireless networks have recently received much attention. Support for mobility in Internet access is gaining signiﬁcant interest as wireless/mobile communications and networking are proliferating, especially boosted by the widespread use of laptops and handheld devices.1 Wireless LANs can be classiﬁed into two broad categories — infrastructured and infrastructureless (ad hoc). In certain wireless networks, one hop is needed to reach the mobile terminal. Ad hoc networks normally require a multi-hop wireless path from the source to the destination. Interest in such networks is increasing day by day.
