MANETs are networks comprising of nodes communicating with each other without network infrastructure and whose advantage is that they can operate alone or in coordination with wired infrastructure. This is usually done through gateway nodes participating for traffic relay in both networks. Application areas are battlefield deployment, rescue work and civilian applications like outdoor meetings or ad-hoc classrooms. This paper shows a process to evaluate link quality to improve routing by using dynamic source routing protocol. Considering wireless links quality, a routing algorithm chooses better paths.
