Wireless Mesh network, a typical wireless ad hoc network, can effectively solve the "last one thousand meters" problem of broadband access. It, with features of selfforming, self-healing and high bandwidth, provides its users with better service by integrating the advantages of WLAN and ad hoc network and fully utilizing and combining with WiMAX, WiFi and other wireless technologies. In network planning, the effective configuration of access point is of great importance for network set-up cost

The research stated in the thesis studied the configuration of wireless Mesh network access point and internet topology control, simulating a pure Mesh network connecting to external networks. By studying the relationships between such parameters as gateway connection and broadcast interval with transfer rate of packets, end to end delay and system overhead, their relationships were able to be confirmed and the correctness of the analysis results was tested by the comparative studies of the simulation results.
