In the design of many proactive routing protocols for MANETs, it is often assumed that topology information is disseminated instantly and error free. Exceptions include hazysighted routing, which deliberately delay the dissemination of topology information such that the average time from when a node learns about a change in topology depends on the distance from the node to where the topology information changed. However, the analysis of hazy-sighted routing neglects the impact of this delay.
