Understanding the performance of routing protocols in ad hoc networks is a key feature to determine which routing protocol is best suited for which type of network scenario. From the literature survey it was found that there is a lot of work done on evaluating the performance of various MANET routing protocols for CBR traffic but there is very little work done for variable bit rate like FTP, TELNET type of traffic. So, in this paper it is proposed to evaluate and analyze the performance of proactive (WRP) and reactive (AODV, DSR) routing protocols based on traffic generators like FTP under different network scenarios like pause time, offered load (i.e., number of source destination pairs), node speed.
