This paper presents the summary of some research in the area of cellular multihop networks that contains the improvement in network performance also the difficulties and the complexities of the networks. The combination of two different networks, mobile cellular networks and WLAN ad hoc networks will be presented. The main purpose of the combination is to minimize the weaknesses of both network types when they are deployed separately. By having this combination then it is possible to provide higher mobility for WLAN ad hoc networks user and higher data transfer rate for cellular network users in multimedia applications. The cellular multihop networks will reduce blocking probability, balance the cells load and increase the network capacities. Although there are improvement on the performance of the combine networks, but there are additional aspects that should be considered seriously, especially for WLAN ad hoc users. Authentication, Authorization and Accounting (AAA) functions, the dynamic routing and relay path discovery, maintenance and security issues are aspects to be considered for cellular multihop network.
