In Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs) the main reason for packet loss is due to the link failure or node failure. When the link failure occurs, the upstream node with the cached data in its buffer can retransmit it through the next reliable link by using a bypass route and fault tolerance technique is alone handled. The technique of choosing the bypass route and the way to avoid congestion in the bypass route are not handled. In this paper, the authors propose an adaptive reliable and congestion control routing protocol to resolve congestion and route errors using bypass route selection in MANETs. When a source node detects congestion on a link along the path, it distributes traffic over alternative paths.
