Heterogeneous Wireless Mesh Network (HWMN) emerges as a highly integrated, robust and high band-width wireless network. Routing metric for HWMN should guarantee the QoS and security of nodes. Routing metric requires two characteristics. First, it is the ability to reflect path quality including nodes and links along the path, which is named node quality and link quality in this paper. The security parameters and security levels can be reflected by node quality. Second, the metric should be able to depict the heterogeneity of nodes in different sub mesh networks.
