Claim of US Patent No. 10,993,164

4. A method comprising:receiving, at a first mesh network device, a first response from a second mesh network device, the first response being associated with a first request sent by a third mesh network device to establish a first wireless path between the third mesh network device and the second mesh network device through the first mesh network device;
receiving, at the first mesh network device, a second response from the second mesh network device, the second response being associated with a second request sent by a fourth mesh network device to establish a second wireless path between the fourth mesh network device and the second mesh network device through the first mesh network device;
determining that the first response and the second response comprise a same first sequential number (SN) associated with the second mesh network device;
forwarding, by the first mesh network device, the first response to the third mesh network device; and
forwarding, by the first mesh network device, the second response to the fourth mesh network device responsive to determining that the first response and the second response comprises the same first SN.
