IEEE 802.11s wireless LAN mesh network technology is the next step in the evolution of wireless architecture. A WLAN mesh network consists of WLAN devices with relay functions that communicate directly. In this type of networks, path selection is based on two protocols: RM-AODV and RAOLSR. These protocols use MAC addresses (layer 2 routing) and use a radio-aware routing metric for the calculation of paths. This paper presents a study of the performance of the proposed path selection algorithms under different scenarios and a comparison with hop count routing protocols AODV and OLSR.
