A wireless mesh network has a more planned configuration, and may be deployed to provide dynamic and cost effective co n- nectivity over a certain geographic area. In this paper, we use the existing methods for calculating the bandwidth of a path for wireless networks and using it we provide an efficient path selection and packet forwarding mechanisms. The main objective of the paper is to provide a quality of service and at the same time utilise the bandwidth efficiently. The interference problem makes it difficult for computation of the available bandwidth for a particular route. In this paper the concept of composite available bandwidth is used along with clique based bandwidth computation. In this paper we will be using AODV routing protocol along with a distributed packet forwarding scheme and we will also find the no of hops to be stored in a packet for the distributed pack- et forwarding scheme based on expected transmission hops
