In this paper, the authors investigate the reliability of multipath routing using multiple gateways in a wireless mesh network. They propose a greedy gateway placement algorithm that tries to minimise the number of gateways needed when a maximum distance between each node and a predefine number of gateways is guaranteed. Simulations results show that their intelligent gateways placement can be employed to complement multipath routing to further improve the reliability of packet delivery. Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) have emerged as an alternative to single-hop access networks for building community or neighbourhood networks.
