"In this paper, the authors consider a mobile ad-hoc wireless access network in which mobile nodes can access the Internet via a stationary gateway node or access point. Mobile nodes that are outside the transmission range of the gateway can continue to communicate with the gateway via a multi-hop connection with their neighboring nodes. The Ad-hoc On-demand Distance Vector (AODV) routing protocol is extended by incorporating the concept of Load-Balancing (LB). They call this the LB-AODV routing protocol. Simulation results show that in a congested network environment, their proposed LB-AODV has a higher packet delivery fraction, a lower end-to-end delay and control overhead when compared with both AODV and gossip-based routing protocols."
