Ad hoc networking allows portable devices to establish communication independent of a central infrastructure. However, the fact that there is no central Infrastructure and that the devices can move randomly gives rise to various kind of problems, such as routing and security. In this paper the problem of routing is considered. This paper addresses issues pertaining to two different routing protocols Destination Sequenced Distance Vector (DSDV) and Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) protocols, which are used for efficient routing under different scenarios in Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET), which plays a critical role in places where wired network are neither available nor economical to deploy.
