Wireless mesh networks are an emerging paradigm for future broadband wireless access networks, with many application areas ranging from content distribution over community networking and providing backhaul networking for sensor devices. In wireless mesh networks, clients connect to wireless routers which are equipped with one or more wireless cards and relay the packets over the wireless links towards internet gateways or the destination. Peer-to-Peer applications are an important class of applications which contributes nowadays to the majority of internet traffic. Therefore, it is important to provide high capacity in the mesh network to support them.
