Communication takes place by routing protocols in effective and efficient manner in wireless network. Efficient protocols are used to forward data packets without much packet loss. Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) is a collection of mobile devices, a self configured, multi-hop network. Simulating Tool NS-2 is an outstanding network simulating tool among all the others. Ad hoc on Demand Distance Vector Routing Protocol (AODV) is one among the effective Reactive Routing Protocol in MANET. The main causes for link break are mobility between nodes such as node failure and node power off.
