Wireless Mesh Network (WMN) is considered as a promising technology and got the attention to be studied lately especially in the area of poor network infrastructure because of its low cost deployment, WMNs are self organized and self-considered, Many ad hoc routing protocols have been adapted to work in WMN without considering the differences between both technologies. Due to the differences between ad hoc network and WMN network, many Researchers started to revisit the routing protocol design of existing Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs). In this paper a review of different ad hoc routing protocols applied to WMNs is presented.
