Internetworking mobile ad-hoc networks (MANETs) with the Internet has been a hot issue for many years. However, most researches have been concentrated on the use of MANETs as the access networks for the Internet. This paper introduces another use of MANETs: backup or load-balancing transit networks for the Internet. To achieve this goal, a scalable, stable, low-overhead, QoS-support ad-hoc routing architecture with the address auto-configuration is required. Moreover, how an Internet gateway selects an external route via MANETs to another autonomous system (AS) also needs to be solved. In this paper, BGP-GCR+, a combination of the border gateway protocol (BGP), the gravitational cluster routing (GCR), and the passive/weak IPv6-based address stateless auto-configuration, is developed towards the standards to achieve the required functions.
