One of the complexities in a wireless mesh networks is its low throughput. For this reason and due to the fact that throughput is highly reduced by increased number of nodes, it is difficult to extend such networks. Therefore, providing a high throughput in these networks is an essential goal. The main lowering cause of efficiency of such networks is interference between wireless links. A high interference leads to a reduced throughput. In this paper, two channel assignment methods were presented using genetic and tabu search algorithms and their advantages and disadvantages were assessed.
