This paper presents the review on different routing protocols for ad hoc wireless networks. This will provide merits and demerits of routing protocol which used in ad hoc wireless network. In this the authors also discuss about new routing protocol based on the Swarm Based Intelligence. The motivation for using Ant like mobile agents for providing routing information to mobile hosts in MANET from the facts that Antlike agents do not require high bandwidth overhead compare to other routing protocols which discuss in this paper. The increase connectivity information provided by Ant can be used to for making better routing decisions which can improve the network performance without causing high over head.
