A stability of routing path is of a great importance for a reliable communication in mobile ad hoc networks. We propose a novel source routing protocol that establishes a group path with virtual multiple paths to enable a robust communication. The entire mobile nodes form a disjoint set of clusters: Each has its clusterhead as a cluster leader and all the members in the same cluster are assigned an identical cluster label by its clusterhead. A group path is a sequence of cluster labels instead of nodes and the nodes with the same label collaborate to deliver packets to a node with next label on the group path. We prove by resorting to simulation that our proposed protocol outperforms the existing key routing protocols, even for a network with a high mobility of node and a high traffic.
