Abstract: The quality of service is a fundamental attribute of MANETs that makes an impression on the performance of the network when connected to the internet. Several researchers have proposed some solutions to improve the performance of the integration of mobile ad hoc network and internet to achieve effective data services at high data rates. A gateway node is needed in this case to establish connection between mobile ad hoc networks and internet. The usage of AODV routing protocol faces problems like establishing a long route, time delay and breakage of routes which leads to perform degradation in the quality of service parameters. This study focus on the development of a multipath gateway route discovery scheme using a cross layer based AODV protocol. The performance analysis of this protocol brings out a better quality of service for data transfer between MANETs and internet environment.
