As wireless communication gains popularity, significant research has been devoted to supporting real - time transmission with stringent Quality of Service (QoS) requirements for wireless applications. At the same time, a wireless ad-hoc network that integrates a Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANETs) has been proven to be a better alternative for wireless communication. Due to bandwidth constraint and dynamic topology of the MANETs, supporting Quality of Service (QoS) is challenging task. This paper proposes a simple, yet effective, method for nodes in MANETs to compute their available bandwidth in a distributed way.
