Wireless Mesh Networks are used as backhaul to join various nets to the internet. The existence of numerous-radios in this systems growths the network capacity but introduces lot of interference. Since Wi-Fi driven internet access has increases across domains, organization and application. A Mesh net is a form of Ad-Hoc network and it extends the internet service to the local nodes through Wi-Fi routers. The nodes can get connected either with 3g, ISDN lines and extend the services of internet to the local nodes. Routing is not a measure challenge in mesh network as the mobility of nodes limited, however the mesh network routes suffers from tremendous power loss due to excessive interference variable bandwidth, loss of bandwidth in the local network. Numerous past techniques are proposed. Different routing techniques for wireless network. Most of the techniques are based on the network layer observation of the bandwidth. As the overall performance of path is effected by different layers (energy, power from physical layer, bandwidth from MAC layer, window size from transport layer), the network layer best routing does not yield efficient result. In this work, we have planned a novel technique by collaborating control information obtained from other layers and obtaining optimal path using cross layer fuzzy base technique or fuzzy cross layer (FCL). We are simulated the proposed protocol in OMNET ++, our result shows that proposed system delivers better packet delivery ratio with less latency and better throughput.
