This paper aims to compare performance of some routing protocols for Mobile Ad-Hoc NETworks (MANETs). A Mobile Ad-Hoc NETwork (MANET) is a collection of wireless mobile nodes forming a temporary network without using any centralized access point, infrastructure, or centralized administration. Data transmission between two nodes in MANETs requires multiple hops as nodes transmission range is limited. Mobility of the different nodes makes the situation even more complicated. Multiple routing protocols especially for these conditions have been developed during the last years, to find optimized routes from a source to some destination.
