Wireless mesh network (WMNs) emerged as a promising technology that offers low-cost high-bandwidth community wireless services. Discovering and maintaining routes between nodes are one of the biggest challenges in WMNs. The ultimate goal of the WMN community is to provide a set of standardized protocols that can be both robust and scalable. To improve the group oriented services a multicast stability scheme is to be used. This paper focused on metrics that estimate link quality to maximize throughput. The main objective of this system is to detect attacks against high throughput multicast routing protocol. This approach improves the robustness of the ODMRP multicast protocol with secured and high throughput metric form. The solution accommodates transient network variations and is resilient against attempts to exploit the defense mechanism itself. Link stability is computed by using the parameters such as received power, distance between neighboring nodes and the link quality assessed using bit errors in a packet. This scheme is expected to provide highly stable, reliable, robust paths. As the paths in this should be stable for longer time and does not break easily during data transfer so this can also give longer battery life. This work will be carried out using NS2.
