The increasing popularity in wireless communication devices and the advancements in wireless technology make the communication in an effective and efficient manner. Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) is a kind of wireless network, having collection of mobile nodes communicated through wireless links without using any infrastructure. Routing Protocols are necessary for forwarding of data packets to have effective communication. The performance of MANET routing protocols degrade the network performance when there is a link break. This paper mainly deals with the fault management to resolve the mobility induced link break. The proposed protocol is the Adaptive Fault Tolerant Multipath Routing (AFTMR) protocol which reduces the packet loss due to mobility induced link break.
