Major researches in MANET have emphasized on the design of efficient routing protocols such as DSDV, AODV, etc. The majority of routing protocols assume that mobile nodes in ad hoc networks are configured with IP addresses before they begin communications in the network. Thus, Auto-configuration is desirable in implementing MANET. In this paper, we investigate a MANET topology that all the nodes in MANET want to connect to the Internet through a special node called the Internet Gateway and we propose a new IPv6 address auto-configuration mechanism in MANET. In order to validate the scheme, we present several simulation results.
