Abstract: Due to the growing demand and wide usage of Wireless Mesh Network (WMN), the situation wherein two or more links using the same channel is increasing. This causes interference and other related issues which degrades the network performance. Also, choosing an appropriate gateway among the available multiple gateways is a critical concern. In order to address these issues in this study, a dynamic channel assignment and gateway selection protocol for multi-channel hybrid wireless mesh network is proposed. In this protocol, a suitable gateway is chosen which fulfils the criteria of the source node. Then channels are assigned in the network by the gateway between itself and the mobile nodes in a fair manner. Simulation results show that the proposed technique attains maximum throughput and minimized delay when compared to the existing cross-layer control dynamic gateway selection approach.
