This paper described how to discover routes that can satisfy QoS service requirements by using extensions to the Enhanced Associativity Bases Routing Protocol (EABR). These extensions were added to the messages used during route discovery. These extensions specify the service requirements, which must be met by nodes re-broadcasting a route request or returning a route reply for a destination. The performance analysis of EABR with QoS support showed that more overhead was incurred when the intermediate node discover that it cannot support the level of the QoS requested.
