In this paper, we propose an improved MANET gateway selection scheme suitable for disaster recovery applications. Having an infrastructure less and decentralize features, MANET is well suited to bring the network back that has been collapse after a disaster. We focus on improving throughput performance of MANET by designing a better gateway selection scheme. The key idea is to eliminate the congestion at each MANET gateway for improved performance. Simulation results show that the proposed gateway selection scheme can efficiently manage the traffic distribution at each gateway to maximize the network performance.
