An ad-hoc mobile network is a collection of mobile nodes that are dynamically and arbitrarily located in such a manner that the interconnections between nodes are capable of changing on a continual basis.Adhoc nodes operating in a single path, single channel model might experience packet loss and high latency due to the congestion caused. Nodes along the heavy traffic path could reach the maximum bandwidth limit and experience undesirable amounts of packet drop. In Adhoc networks the nodes are mobile and contain no infrastructure. Certain emergency messages have to be delivered with very low latency and high reliability. An efficient routing protocol should ensure reliable packet delivery in a timely manner. Our Proposed solution is to setup multiple optimal paths based on bandwidth and delay. It allows storing multiple optimal paths based on Bandwidth and delay. At time of link failure, it will switch to next available path. To set up multiple paths, we have used the information that we get in the RREQ packet and also send RREP packet to more than one path It reduces overhead of local route discovery at the time of link failure. We investigated the performance metrics namely Retransmission Attempt, Media Access Delay, Network Load by through OPNET simulation.
