Wireless Mesh network (WMN) is multi-hop heterogeneous network, which breaks shortcomings of traditional wireless network. WMN comes into sight with more advantages. To the multi-radio multi-channel (MRMC) wireless mesh networks (MRMCWMN), routing distribution, channel assignment and rate allocation can be united to optimize network performance. MRMC resource optimization method based on convex theory for WMN is presented in this paper. According to convex theory, we use the convex optimization function to get the optimal solution in the limited network supporting by Ad hoc On-Demand Distance Vector (AODV) routing method. At the same time, we resolve the optimal solution into three simple sub-problems according to the Lagrange duality method supporting by multi-radio multi-channel AODV (MAODV). We use MATLAB simulation tools to simulate the new and improved optimization method. The experimental results show that our method has better network performance in the applications of WMN.
