Radio channel is time-varying because of fading effects. Under the situation, wireless backhaul cannot achieve a stable route. In this paper, we propose a new routing protocol which uses successive average of propagation loss as routing metric so that it can mitigate the time-varying channel. The proposed routing protocol is implemented to a testbed and evaluated under real indoor environment. Experimental results show that the proposed routing protocol achieves a stable routing even in time-varying channel condition and stable system throughput is achieved by the stable route.
