Abstract: Wireless Mesh Networks (WMN) is an emerging distributed broadband network which has the potential to provide internet to stationary and mobile mesh clients. The mesh clients are interconnected by wireless backbone managed by Mesh routers. Routing protocol and Scheduling are the main challenges faced by Wireless Mesh Networks. This paper provides a review of routing protocol for WMN to efficiently utilize the resources available in the network. It also provides a review on various mechanisms of scheduling in WMNs.
