In this paper, we propose a new method using dynamic linkage with IP-based infrastructure to compose a wide-area MANET. The proposed method extends AODV and enables searches for destinations in the IP-based infrastructure. The proposed method settles the low scalability problem by creating shortcuts in the IP network. In addition, to overcome the geographical dependence problem, the proposed method connects terminals that are out of radio range with each other by using the IP-based infrastructure. In this way, the proposed method can flexibly establish a wide-area MANET that is scalable and free from geographical constraint.
