Abstract: Mobile Ad hoc Network (MANET) consists of a group of mobile nodes that can communicate with each other without the need of infrastructure. The movement of nodes in MANET is random; therefore MANETs have a dynamic topology. Because of this dynamic topology, the link breakages in these networks are something common. This problem causes high data loss and delay. In order to decrease these problems, the idea of link breakage prediction has appeared. In link breakage prediction, the availability of a link is evaluated, and a warning is issued if there is a possibility of soon link breakage. In this paper a new approach of link breakage prediction in MANETs is proposed. This approach has been implemented on the well known Dynamic Source Routing protocol (DSR). This new mechanism was able to decrease the packet loss and delay that occur in the original protocol.
