Broadcasting is one of the essential communication models of MANETs. Many MANET multicast routing protocols rely heavily upon MAC layer's broadcast support. However, the broadcast mechanism of the standard IEEE 802.11 cannot provide reliable broadcasting service. In this paper, we improve the IEEE 802.11 broadcast mechanism's reliability by introducing the new layer of MAC called Dual MAC.
