Wireless Mesh Networks used for broadband access may be equipped with multiple Internet gateways. Using airtime metric as the main criterion for path selection is an effective method for achieving load-balancing in such a multi-homed mesh network. This paper describes how the radio-aware path selection using airtime as a metric can be implemented in order to achieve this functionality, based on a modified version of an open source OLSR implementation. The paper presents both the principle of this method, its implementation and the testing results, focusing on the airtime metric functionality deployed in a small-scale test network.
