Abstract--Wireless mesh networking is an exciting new technology that
has applications in defence, metro-area Internet access, and transient net-
works (e.g: disaster recovery, conventions). In this paper, we describe the
design and implementation of a self-configuring, secure infrastructure mesh
network architecture, called MeshCluster, composed using multi-radio net-
work nodes. A subset of radio interfaces on these nodes are used for provid-
ing network access to end-devices whereas other radio interface are used for
relaying packets to nearest Internet gateway. We identify four key design
problems: (1) auto-configuration of MeshCluster nodes and relay infras-
tructure, (2) single and multipath routing in the relay infrastructure using
routing metrics, (3) load balancing in the relay infrastructure, and (4) sup-
