In recent years, the demand for the network usage is increasing day by day. While transferring the data from source to destination, these networks experience frequent link failure which are caused by channel interference and dynamic obstacles, resulting in poor system performance. To preserve the network performance a Modified Autonomous Network Reconfiguration System is used, which identifies a link failure and enables a multi radio wireless mesh network to autonomously recover from the local link failure thus improving the QoS. Modified Autonomous Network Reconfiguration System is implemented extensively on IEEE 802.11b based WMN through NS2 simulation for mobile node configuration. The performance parameters of different recovery methods are analyzed and compared with modified autonomous system.

We have implemented a Modified ARS for a mobile node configuration, based on IEEE 802.11b wireless links. It is found that a Modified ARS is more effective than ARS in terms of throughput and latency. By the election of leader node, the energy consumption and timing has been reduced. Thus a Modified ARS offers better efficiency in a mobile node configuration.
