Nowadays, multimedia and real-time applications consume much network resources and so, need high flow rates and very small transfer delay. The current ad hoc networks (MANETs), in their original state, are not able to satisfy the requirements of Quality of Service (QoS). Researches for improving QoS in these networks are main topics and a subject of intensive researches. In Adhoc networks, the routing phase plays an important role for improving QoS. Numerous routing protocols (proactive, reactive and hybrid) were proposed. AODV (Adhoc On demand Distance Vector) is probably the more treated in literature.
