In this paper, a simple yet efficient algorithm called Active Relinquish Scheme (ARS) is proposed to enhance the end-to-end throughput of multi-hop ad hoc networks. The principle of our scheme is to equalize the throughput of each node through a multi-hop flow. Consequently, the fairness of the network is improved. Simulation results through OPNET show that our scheme works well in different kinds of topologies, regardless of the scale of the network.
