The article presents the key routing protocols for wireless mesh networks and routing metrics that affect transmission efficiency. Routing protocols are crucial element for performance of mesh networks. However, the specificity of the radio channel and transmission between closely neighboring nodes requires the use of routing techniques not yet implemented in wired networks. As part of the research includes a comparative analysis of representative routing protocols carried out in the OMNeT++ environment. Results of simulation has been presented and compared.
