Generally, due to unbalanced load allocation, congestion results in mobile adhoc networks. By keeping dynamic metrics such as network load, will result in load balanced routing thus avoiding congestion. The resources allocated for real-time traffic result in wastage of resources, if there is no such traffic is available for a particular period. In this paper, the authors propose a new distributed load based routing algorithm intended for a variety of traffic classes to establish the best routing paths. The proposed algorithm calculates the cost metric on the basis of the load on the links. The dynamic traffic can be classified as multimedia and normal traffic. Multimedia traffic is considered as high priority and normal traffic as low priority.
