Research interest towards wireless mesh network has improved drastically. WMN is emerging as promising technology for many useful applications. Many efforts have been conducted to maximize network throughput in multi-channel multi-radio wireless mesh network. Most current approaches are based on either purely static or purely dynamic. Channel allocation plays major role to maximize the network throughput. In hybrid channel allocation, every mesh node is equipped with static and dynamic interfaces. In turn, Interference and Congestion Aware Routing protocol (ICAR) in hybrid network with both static and dynamic links, which are capable of balancing the channel usage in network, is proposed.
