A mobile ad hoc network (MANET) is a wireless network without any fixed infrastructure. All nodes must communicate with each other by a predefined routing protocol. Most of routing protocols don’t consider binding internet addresses to mobile nodes. However, in network mobility (NEMO), all mobile nodes can’t only communicate with Internet using Bi-directional tunneling but also can be allocated an Internet address. In this paper, we propose two algorithms with the nested NEMO topology to reconstruct the Internet-based MANET. Additionally, a novel load balancing solution is proposed. The Mobile Router (MR) which acts as a central point of internet attachment for the nodes, and it is likely to be a potential bottleneck because of its limited wireless link capacity. We proposed a load-information in the route advertisement (RA) message. The simulation results show that the proposed solution has significantly improved the connection throughput.
