The broadcast storm problem is one of the most
challenging issues in Mobile ad Hoc Networks (MANETs).
However, it is still a challenging problem despite the great deal
of related works and existing solutions. Dynamic Source
Routing Protocol (DSR) is one of the well-known on-demand
routing protocols that has been widely studied and analyzed
over the past few years. However, there is a lack of methods
and solutions for the broadcast storm problem in DSR under the
umbrella of dynamic operating conditions. Thus, to improve the
routing discovery process in DSR we incorporate a new counter
based broadcast algorithm in DSR, namely, Inspired Counter
Based Broadcasting (DSR-ICB). The new variants are based on
the counter based approach which reduces the number of
redundant packets. Simulation experiments have been
conducted in different scenarios. The results illustrate that the
proposed algorithm has significantly improved the DSR in
terms of a number of important metrics such as saved
rebroadcasts, reachability, end-to-end latency, packet delivery
