Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) are been extensively used in large mile broadband communications, surveillance systems etc. The key issues of neighbor discovery in WMN are link quality measurement procedures and their corresponding link quality metrics. IEEE 802.11s proposes multihop forwarding at the MAC level with Hybrid Wireless Mesh Protocol (HWMP) and Airtime as the default path selection protocol and metric which is a new approach for building WMNs. Link-layer measurement of wireless mesh networks involves the capture of traffic as it appears on the medium.
