Multi-hop wireless ad hoc networks suffer from temporary link error due to fading. In order to improve packet transmission reliability and achieve efficient transmission in fading environment, a new cognitive temporary bypassing scheme is proposed based on a cross-layer approach and cognitive behavior of local nodes. The proposed scheme enables neighboring nodes to prepare and create a temporary bypass for lost-packets. This is done by monitoring message packets that include information of the multi-hop route and link-acknowledgement. The scheme also includes an anti-collision function that is necessary to prevent contention among multiple bypassing nodes. Packet success probability with the proposed scheme is studied both by theoretical analysis and time-domain computer simulation for Rayleigh faded single- and multi-hop links. Network simulation using a modified QualNet simulator validate that packet success probability is remarkably improved with the scheme for maximum Doppler frequencies up to 30 Hz.
