Mobile ad-hoc network technology has gained popularity in recent years by researchers on account of its flexibility, low cost and ease of deployment. The objective of this paper is to model the behavior of MANET for DSR protocol by considering some prominent routing metrics. These metrics (packet delivery fraction, normalized routing load, average end-to-end delay etc.) have been generated by Network Simulator NS 2.34 tools and the node movement has been generated using Bonmotion 1.4.The MANET behavior for DSR protocol is hypothesized to be dependent on fuzzy variables like node density, pause time, number of packets transferred, and the number of connection.
