Routing in an ad hoc network is always a challenging task because of the free and random movement of nodes. This high node mobility sometimes results in route failures and decreased network performance. It further degrades the overall performance of the routing protocol. In this paper, the authors have analyzed the effect of two node mobility parameters, i.e., varying speed and number of nodes, on the throughput of Ad hoc on-demand Distance Vector Routing Protocol. The performance is experimentally tested and compared using ns2 simulator. The simulation results are graphically shown and explained.
