The inherent dynamic and mobile natures of mobile ad hoc networks bring its flexibility and convenience in network deployment and application, but following with serious challenges on the route maintenance synchronously. Selecting the stable routes can reduce the control overloads resulting from the route rebuilding and maintaining process, improve the utilization of limited network resources, extend the network lifetime and provide the QoS guarantee. This paper proposed a method for measuring the route stability based on the information entropy which utilized the degree of uncertainty as the standard for stable route selection. Simulation results showed that the route selected by our method could improve the network performance remarkably.
