Mobile ad-hoc network is a collection of wireless mobile hosts forming a temporary network without the aid of any stand-alone infrastructure or centralized administration. Mobile ad-hoc network have the attribute such as wireless connection, continuously changing topology, distributed operation and ease of deployment. In this paper, the authors have investigated the performance of two MANET routing protocol (Proactive and Reactive) by using Freeway and Random Waypoint mobility model for mobility of nodes using TCP traffic. Freeway Mobility model has been generated by IMPORTANT (Impact of Mobility Patterns on Routing in Ad-hoc NeTwork) tool, whereas Random Waypoint by inbuilt setdest tool in NS2. A detailed simulation has been carried out in NS2 with TCP traffic sources and AODV as reactive and DSDV as proactive routing protocols.
