Ad hoc network is a collection of wireless mobile nodes where wireless radio interface connects each device in a MANET to move freely, independently and randomly. Routing protocols in mobile ad hoc network helps to communicate source node with destination node by sending and receiving packets. Many authors have compared various routing protocols such as AODV, DSR, DSDV, TORA, DYMO, OLSR etc in the past. In this paper, the authors have analyzed the behavior of three routing protocols AODV (Ad hoc On demand Distance Vector), DYMO (DYnamic MANET On demand), and OLSR (Optimized Link State Routing) in the network protocol IPV4 & IPV6 and compared the performance of these protocols using Qualnet5.0.2 simulator.
