Wireless Mesh Network arises as a promising innovation for providing quick and productive communication for which numerous algorithms have been proposed in networking infrastructure. For routing there are various performance parameters such as throughput, network congestion, resiliency, fairness, robustness, network jitter, delay, stability, optimality, simplicity, completeness, etc. Robustness provides the capability to deal with all the failures that come across during the connection in the network to increase the network performance. In this paper, we have shown and analyzed three algorithms namely robustness parameter Resilient multicasting, Resilient Opportunistic Mesh Routing for Wireless Mesh Network (ROMER) and Buffer-Based Routing (BBR) in Wireless Mesh Networks. We have shown that network performance of BBR is better than these approaches which is analyzed through various parameters such as network congestion, network throughput and resiliency.
