Wireless Multi-hop Networks (WMhNs) are supposed to be the forerunner among the currently existing communication technologies. They provide users with flexible structures, feasible cost, convenience, ever growing bandwidths and innovative solutions. The increasing demands of the users provide a challenge to improve the quality of WMhNs. The performance of WMhNs depends upon the efficiency of the routing protocol operating it. The most important component of a routing protocol is routing link metric. Depending on the demands, the routing protocol must choose a realistic routing link metric to select the quality links.
