Routing is an important challenge in wireless adhoc networks. Mobile Adhoc networks are infrastructure less and are characterized by multi-hop wireless connectivity and changing network topology. They are self organized networks. Role of routing protocols becomes even more significant because of the dynamically changing topology of MANET. A routing protocol is required whenever a packet needs to be transfer to a destination via number of nodes. Since the mid 90s MANETs are popular research topic due to growth of laptops and Wi-Fi wireless networking. Various protocols are evaluated to make MANETs reliable.
