This paper reduces link failure and provides stability to the Mobile ad-hoc networks (MANET’s) by distributing load among the nodes in the cluster. Clusterhead in MANET’s determine the topology, provide stability to the network and manage resources. As a result clusterhead share greater responsibility and may deplete their energy faster causing link failures. A weight based clustering algorithm is being proposed that takes into consideration transmission range, transmission power, transmission rate, battery power, mobility, interference, link failures and a counter variable for balancing the load. The simulation results are compared with Lowest- id algorithm, Weighted clustering algorithm and Weight based adaptive clustering algorithm in terms of number of clusterheads, transmission range, number of nodes, battery usage and link failures .It was found that the proposed algorithm performs better than existing algorithms.

Keywords: Clusterhead, MANET’s, Weight, Link Failure
