The Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETS) are suitable to be utilized in the context of an extreme emergency conditions such as battle field and disaster recovery because less requirement of infrastructure and dynamic nature. These, along with applications of these networks in military, government and in commercial area, MANETs are being researched by many organizations and institutes. Many protocols have been developed for data link layer and network layer. Many researchers have been conducted numerous simulations for comparing the performance of these protocols under varying conditions and constraints.
