Can somebody please explain me how the broadcasts work in multihop wireless networks. Are the packets unicast forwarded or broadcast forwarded. For e.g. A,B,C,D are four nodes, (A&B) in each other's range & (B,C & D) in the other range. When A broadcasts a packet, how will B forward the packet to C & D ? Unicast forwarding or it too will broadcast? If it will be broadcasted, it creates a broadcast storm, How will that be handled? Thanks in advance.
