Ad hoc networks are wireless multihop networks whose highly volatile topology makes the design and operation of a standard routing protocol hard. With an active networking approach, one can define and deploy routing logic at runtime in order to adapt to special circumstances and requirements. We have implemented several active ad hoc routing protocols that configure the forwarding behavior of mobile nodes, allowing data packets to be efficiently routed between any two nodes of the wireless network. Isolating a simple forwarding layer in terms of both implementation and performance enables us to stream delay-sensitive audio data over the ad hoc network. In the control plane, active packets permanently monitor the connectivity and setup, and modify the routing state
