Mobile Ad Hoc NETworks (MANETs) consist of mobile nodes which are not controlled by any base station. Mobile nodes act as a major role because of performing the data transmission, route discovery, route maintenance. The packet loss occurs often while the nodes are moving out of range, or the node has not enough either path and link stability or neighbor node stability. In this paper the authors propose Prediction based Link Stability Scheme (PLSS) to make a correct balance between stability of path, link, neighbor node and total mobile nodes to extend the network lifetime. The main of the proposed work is to reduce the packet loss and provide better stability using the stability model.
