Abstract-- This paper presents a routing protocol for multi-
homed wireless mesh networks that provide uninterrupted con-
nectivity and fast handoff. Our approach integrates wireless
and wired connectivity, using multicast groups to coordinate
decisions and seamlessly transfer connections between several
Internet gateways as mobile clients move between access points.
The protocol optimizes the use of the wireless medium by short-
cutting wireless hops through wired connections, paying a very
low overhead during handoffs. The paper demonstrates that
inter-domain handoffs occur instantaneously, with virtually no
loss or delay, for both TCP and UDP connections.
