Wireless Mesh Network (WMNs) is a promising technology that has been accepted favorably by the Internet Service Providers (ISPs). ISPs use it to provide last mile broadband Internet connectivity to the end users. This popularity arises from the fact, that it inter operates well with diverse wireless systems and provides robust fault tolerance with a high degree of redundancy and reliability. Routing metrics plays a crucial part in the performance of WMN. When routing protocols are implemented, the routing metric is assigned to different paths. It calculates the optimum path to predict the best routing path. These are integrated in routing protocols to improve WMNs efficiency in terms of reliability, latency, throughput, error rate and cost. This paper compares the impact of using load balancing interference aware routing metric (LBIARM) on the performance of Multi-Channel Multi Radio WMNs (MCMR WMNs). The performance of LBIARM was evaluated by comparing it with popular standard metrics weighted cumulative expected transmission time metric and Hop Count metric. OPNET Modeler 17.5 PL1 was used as a simulation tool for implementation. Simulation results show the effectiveness of using LBIARM metric on MCMR WMNs.
