Wireless communication has already entered in the people daily life. A particular model of wireless networks is Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) which can be made operational anywhere without the need for any fixed backbone infrastructure. Due to the absence of fixed backbone there are a plenty of problems in applying the well developed concepts of routing, transport layer, auto-configuration, security and co-operation to MANET. TCP-New Reno is a relatively newer protocol proposed for the wireless networks to work at transport level. DSDV, DSR and AODV are three largely used and studied routing protocols, and is good candidates for implementation in commercial ad-hoc networks. Thus understanding and evaluating how they work together with TCP-New Reno can lead to useful facts.
