Due attention has been paid to design stable and efficient routing protocols in mobile ad hoc networks by both researchers and manufacturers. However, few of those proposed routing protocols concern about the impact of network density on the quality of routing. In this paper, we propose a stability considered density adaptive routing protocol not only to support the stable routing, but to guarantee the efficiency of routing process in order to reduce the overhead caused by control messages generated in the routing process. According to different density values of vicinity, our proposal adopts the corresponding routing tactics to guarantee the stability and efficiency of routing process. The performance simulation analysis confirms the availability and superiority of our routing protocol.
