Abstract: In the field of computer networks various routing and internetworking algorithms and protocols have been introduced according to many performance metrics like network topology, scalability, speed, and congestion control requirements. In this paper we have used the concept of scale-free network theory to design a more robust data dissemination approach which can be used in one dynamical Autonomous System (AS) to know the disappearance and appearance of nodes, and speedily propagate the information to all nodes in the routers network. By taking advantage of the features of scale-free network behavior as found in inhomogeneous structure, short path lengths and epidemiological spreading, an enhanced algorithm has been introduced which effectively find the node status in the network and speedily broadcast the information of status to all nodes in the network.
