A significant number of broadcasting protocols are unable to cope well with failures under a realistic scenario of momentary failures and topology changes. In order to enhance the capability of broadcasting algorithms to deal with this kind of faults, a new mechanism is proposed capable of identifying those neighboring links that are more reliable prior to transmission. This paper shows how the mechanism can be used to enhance the reliability of two important classes of deterministic protocols - neighborhood-designating and self-pruning - and demonstrates, through the aid of simulation experiments, its efficiency.
