As multimedia and group-oriented computing becomes increasingly popular for the users of mobile ad hoc networks (MANET). Due to the dynamic nature of the network topology and restricted resources, quality of service (QoS) and multicast routing in MANET is a challenging task. It attracts the interests of many people. In this paper, we present a fuzzy controllers based QoS routing algorithm with a multiclass scheme (FQRA) in MANET. The performance of this scheduler is studied using NS2 and evaluated in terms of quantitative met-rics such as path success ratio, average end-to-end delay and throughput. Simu-lation shows that the approach is efficient, promising and applicable in MANET.
