The focus of this paper is to survey the use of EXOR routing scheme and routing metrics to be applied in hybrid wireless networks over the traditional unicast routing protocols used for mobile ad hoc networks. On performing a thorough analysis of various literatures, it is proposed that use of EXOR with ETX metric in hybrid wireless networks would give a better throughput than that of the traditional unicast routing protocols for ad hoc networks. This survey would be a great source of information for researches with focus in hybrid networks.
