Detecting Malfunctioning Nodes in Mobile Ad Hoc Networks by Using EAACK

Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) is considered as network without infrastructure where communication between the mobile nodes solely depends on the routing protocols which work on assumption that nodes are fully cooperative. In the presence of malfunctioning nodes, most of the routing protocols show dropped performance and in some case whole of the network fails. Malfunctioning nodes interrupt the data flow by either by dropping or refusing to forward the data packets thus forcing routing protocol to restart the route-discovery or to select an alternative route if available which may again include some malfunctioning nodes, thereby forming a loop, enforcing source node to conclude that data cannot be further transferred.
