Abstract--The static nature of mesh nodes imposes require-
ments for designing routing metrics that support high throughput
and low packet delay. This paper considers the problem of
interference-load aware routing in multi channel wireless mesh
networks. We propose a new Interference-Load Aware routing
metric, ILA, that finds paths with reduced inter-flow and intra-
flow interference. The aim of this metric is to route the traffic
through congestion free areas and balance the load amongst
the network nodes. We incorporate this new metric in the well
known AODV routing protocol and study the performance of
ILA through simulations. We show that the proposed metric is
able to adapt to changes in interfering traffic better than existing
link metrics such as ETT and MIC. We also demonstrate that
our metric delivers high throughput in multi channel networks.
