Wireless Mesh Network is a new and promising paradigm in wireless networks that allows network deployment at a much lower cost. Routing is the main research issue in the development of Wireless Mesh Networks. Many of the routing approaches have been borrowed from Wireless Mobile Ad hoc Network to achieve routing solutions in Wireless Mesh Networks but these approaches are not ideal or optimal. These routing protocols can be distinguished as proactive and reactive routing protocols. As a Wireless Mesh Network is itself a hybrid network solution among ad hoc and static networks, a hybrid routing approach is required. In this paper, we provide the secure multi-path version of this hybrid routing protocol, which enhances the reliability in the network, provide secure routing and has efficient techniques of finding alternate routes when a route is lost. We provide comparisons of this routing protocol with other routing protocols that are available for Wireless Mesh Networks.
