Wireless ad hoc network consist of mobile nodes which rely on each other to transmit data over multi-hops by forwarding packets. In the process of data transmission route discovery and maintenance are the greatest challenges as the node may move unpredictably. A lot of work has been carried out and numbers of protocols have been designed to take care of the above problem. In this paper, the authors propose a simple approach that by reducing the number of broadcasts and overhead guarantees the route availability to the destination.
