Abstract: This study is focused on the design and development of efficient congestion avoidance and routing algorithm framework in Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs). The framework will employ the use of clustering algorithm to booster the routing protocol with particular attention being paid to the aggregated data packets at the intermediate nodes toward the gateway in wireless mesh network. The design uses the enhanced weighted clustering algorithm as base algorithm because of the advantages identified in this protocol from previous research. Efforts are made to integrate congestion avoidance, load balancing routing and the clustering algorithm with the greater hope of achieving low routing overheads, end to end delay while throughout and data delivery ratio expected to witness high increase.
