Within the last few years, prevalence and importance of wireless networks increased significantly. Especially, wireless mesh networks received a lot of attention in both academic research and commercial deployment. The networking performance of the mesh can degraded gradually, if a node gets malicious. Internal malicious nodes are the prime reason of most of the attacks in network and only few works have done in preventing the internal nodes which are compromised from degrading the performance. In this paper, we propose the Special Acknowledgment (SpAck) scheme that can be put as an optional feature for HWMP to detect node misbehavior and to find out malicious node. The main technique of the SpAck scheme is to forward Special acknowledgment packets. The effectiveness of SpAck based HWMP is analyzed through simulation
