This paper describes the opportunistic routing in dynamic ad hoc networks, the OPRAH protocols, which uses the air interface to find a more optimal path for each packet in a dynamic network. In the static environment the connectivity is perturbed only by fading between two fixed points, the performance of these protocols depends on how steady a route is. Thus these protocols have the following advantages: ability to interoperate with wired protocols, to ensure that the ad hoc network can communicate with the legacy wired infrastructure, it works in a low mobility environment, and it should be implemented using relatively simple off-the-shelf components
