Wireless mesh networks become popular and are used everywhere as an alternative to broadband connections. The ease of configuration of wireless mesh LAN, the mobility of clients, and the large coverage make it attractive choice for supporting wireless technology in LAN and MAN. However, there are some concerns in assigning the multiple channels for different node and having efficient routing algorithm to route packet seamlessly without affecting the network performance. Multiple channel usage has been addressed in previous research paper, but efficient routing algorithm still to be researched. In this paper an efficient seamless non-broadcast routing algorithm has been developed to support the wireless mesh network. This algorithm is based on mapping the mesh wireless routing nodes geographically according to 2 coordinates. Each node will apply this algorithm to find the closet neighboring mode that lead to destination based on the mapped network without the need for broadcast such as the one used in traditional routing protocol in RIP, and OSPF.
