The purpose of this document is to describe an approach to using the clustering paradigm in a routing protocol for multi-hop ad-hoc wireless networks with Internet access. In the mesh cluster based routing protocol (MCBRP) wireless nodes are grouped into clusters with a cluster-head responsible for communication management. Moreover an existence of special cluster-heads called hard-cluster-heads has been assumed. Hard-cluster-heads have the functionality of an interface between wireless and other types of network, usually the Internet. This paper describes each node type: cluster-member, cluster-soft-head, and cluster-hard-head. Furthermore assumptions, used solutions and discussion have been presented.
