Recently a new method is developed to handle the problem of routing in ad hoc network and overcomes the shortcomings of the classical methods; these methods are based on swarm intelligence inspired from biological swarms, such as ants in order to solve some complex problems such as finding food or optimizing route to food in real insect swarms. One of the most known routing algorithms for MANETs, as described Ant based Routing Algorithm (ARA) suffers from some limitations within the pheromone computing since it has not taken the necessary consideration to the characteristics of MANETs such as mobility and the medium constraint. Therefore, in our proposed enhancement to ARA called Link quality based ARA (LARA), it can be included the link quality in route selection and probability computing which have considerably improved the network performance and the system lifetime.
