The current duration of a link in a mobile wireless ad hoc network (MANET) can be used for link stability assessment through on-line remaining link life estimation. These estimates implicitly include the effects of true propagation mechanisms, mobility space geometry, power control mechanisms and other phenomena that are ignored or simplistically modeled in other methods based on location or signal strength measures. In this paper we use such estimates for multipath/backup adaptive dynamic routing, and compare its performance with a corresponding multipath/backup version of DSR.
