Abstract: An ad hoc network is a mobile wireless network that has no centralized infrastructure and not has fixed access point. Each node in the network also functions as a mobile router of data packets for other nodes. However, due to node mobility, link failures in such networks are very frequent and render certain standard protocols inefficient resulting in wastage of power and loss in throughput. Due to high node mobility the neighbor list of a node might change more often, thereby raising the need for predicting link lifetime for improving reliability in communication. The cases when network size is large or traffic rate is very high, often leads to frequent congestion in the network. In this paper we propose Link Breakage prediction i.e. LBP based on signal strength, energy and position of the dispersed node randomly in network using Ad-hoc on demand Distance Vector routing protocol modification. In this context targeted QoS parameters are selected for performance measurement. So the results demonstrated that proposed mechanism is very effective for ad-hoc network.
