Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs) are infrastructure less networks. The network topology may change rapidly because of high mobile nodes. Link failures are common because of the same reason. In this paper, Weight-Based Reliable Routing (WBRR) method for MANETs is proposed. This method includes features that improve routing reliability, defined as the ability to increase packet delivery rate and throughput and uses the weight-based route strategy to select a stable route. Some parameters are assumed, like node remaining energy, route expiration time, no of errors and no of hops. Experimental results show that the proposed WBRR performs better than DSR (Dynamic Source Routing) in the high mobility environment.
