Ad hoc networks are new paradigm of networks offering unrestricted mobility without any underlying infrastructure. Routing is one of the most basic networking functions in mobile ad hoc networks. In partitioned networks, same addresses can exist between partitioned networks. Therefore, when several partitioned networks or independent networks merge into one network, potential address conflicts must be resolved. The address conflicts are detected through a DAD (Duplicate Address Detection) procedure. In this paper, authors introduced three schemes: PDAD-RREQ Never-Sent (RNS), PDAD-RREP-without-RREQ (RwR), and PDAD-2RREPs-on-RREQ (2RoR).
