The Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs) have been communicating over wireless mesh channels and support multihop networks. Every node in the MANET is free to move independently in any direction. MANET is a kind of wireless mesh network which operates in Link Layer (LL) of Ad hoc networks. The current network scenarios consist of combined wired and wireless links which demands for investigating the performance in such mesh scenarios. This Paper investigates the performance evaluation of MANET over 802.11 wireless networks. MANET also uses TCP/IP structure to provide communication between different moving nodes.
