Mobile ad hoc networks have seen tremendous research being carried out looking into various issues in the area of routing, disruption tolerance and mobility control amongst other issues. MANET has a typical environment and in many works MANET is not treated as a case of infrastructureless network. This work aims to treat Ad Hoc networks differently than a Wireless Infrastructure Network. This work also aims at proposing a framework for route maintenance of a network of any size in case of sparsely deployed topologies and maintain the mobility of all the nodes to the advantage of the participating nodes.
