Wireless mesh networks are a promising area for the deployment of new wireless communication and networking technologies. This paper addresses the problem of enabling effective peer-to-peer resource sharing in this type of networks. In particular, one considers the well-known Chord protocol for resource sharing in wired networks and the recently proposed MeshChord specialization for wireless mesh networks, and compare their performance under various network settings for what concerns total generated traffic and load balancing. Both iterative and recursive key lookup implementation in Chord/MeshChord are considered in the extensive performance evaluation. The results confirm superiority of MeshChord with respect to Chord, and show that recursive key lookup is to be preferred when considering communication overhead, while similar degree of load unbalancing is observed.
