"Current technologies, such as Bluetooth and IEEE 802.11b, can form ad hoc networks but is limited in that only single hop networks can be formed. This means that each node can only act as a host, whereas in a multi-hop ad hoc network all nodes act as routers. This paper concentrated on the problem of adding multi-hop capabilities to existing ad hoc network platforms such as IEEE 802.11b. This capability will allow a network to be fully dynamic, self-organizing and self-configuring."
