In this paper, MWAN (Mobile Wireless Ad hoc Networks with internet connection) is considered, which is a solution for many tasks owing to its ease of use, and practicality. Recently, MWAN is required to support large data like multimedia data transfer and it is transferred through several relay nodes. There are 2 problems that cause difficulties for large data transfer through a mobile network. First one is rerouting delay by handoff and second one is network congestion caused by handoff. Also, faulty data transfer caused by handoff delay makes extra load and causes some problems for MWAN. To solve these problems and get network reliability, we propose a new multipath routing scheme that can provide solution for seamless connection while handoff. In the proposed scheme, our MWAN can support multiple paths for data transfer, maintain end-to-end connection while handoff and get new route quickly. The performance of the proposed scheme is evaluated and compared with other multipath routing scheme to show the improvement.
