An overlay network comprises overlay nodes that are responsible for routing and forwarding, connected by overlay links that correspond to paths in the underlying network. The end-nodes in overlay networks are highly connected to each other due to flexible routing. This architecture have two major components; overlay nodes with virtual links, and the native layer over which the overlay network is built, and ensure performance and availability of internet routing, multicasting, QoS guarantees. This paper complements the current research on routing in ad hoc network by proposing a new protocol EADOV.
