Many possibilities have been explored for building a scalable peer to peer communications using Distributed Hash Table (DHT) based proposals like chord, CAN, pastry, and tapestry etc. that provides a simple lookup service during content sharing. Although these DHT's exhibit several advantages that fit in a P2P context, a p2p lookup computation overhead is still noticeable during initiations. Wireless Mesh Networks (WMN) offer an attractive platform for a wide range of applications driven by its categorical implementations such as infrastructure, client, and hybrid based. A remarkable feature for client based WMN's is its natural architecture to support P2P communications.
