ARP handles neighbor discovery and address resolution in infrastructure networks, but is inadequate for Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANETs). Thus, many MANET routing protocols include a neighbor discovery mechanism. This separation of neighbor discovery and address resolution is a fundamental design problem that causes packet loss, particularly when the communication is manycast, a novel variant of multicast communication. Our approach, automatic address resolution, moves address resolution into
