A mobile ad hoc network is a multi hop wireless network formed by a group of mobile nodes that have wireless capabilities. Connections in MANET (Mobile Ad hoc Networks) are established and revoked dynamically as the network is dynamic. The entities in the network can join and leave the network anytime. Transmission of data becomes challenging in such networks where the position of a node is not fixed nor is the link joining the two nodes permanent. Efficient routing algorithms are required for efficiently transmitting data in the network. Research in the area of designing an efficient algorithm is an upcoming area, the expected outcome of which is an efficient algorithm which can help in better performance. This work proposes improved AODV (Ad hoc On demand Distance Vector) routing algorithm named as AODV - BL which helps in quick rebuilding of the broken links from source to destination. Protocol maintains a backup list at the source node containing all the possible routes from source to destination. The model has been implemented and tested on NS2 (Network Simulator) and results are compared with standard AODV protocol. Results exhibit the better performance of the proposed algorithm.
