This paper presents an Autonomous network Reconfiguration System (ARS) that enables a multi-radio WMN to autonomously recover from local link failures to preserve network performance. These failures cause severe performance deprivation in WMNs or require expensive manual network management for their real-time recovery. By using channel and radio diversities in WMNs, ARS generates necessary changes in local radio and channel assignments in order to recover from failures. Next, based on the thus generated configuration changes, the system considerately reconfigures network settings among local mesh routers. Multihop wireless Mesh Networks (WMN) experience frequent link failures due to channel interference, dynamic obstacles and bandwidth demands. They guide to performance deprivation in wireless mesh networks.
