Routing data from source to destination is hard in Mobile Ad-Hoc NETworks (MANET) due to the mobility of the network elements and lack of central administration. The main method for evaluating the performance of MANETs is simulation. In this paper performance of Ad-hoc On-demand Distance Vector (AODV) reactive routing protocol is studied by considering IEEE 802.11 and IEEE 802.15.4 standards. Metrics like average end-to-end delay, packet delivery ratio, total bytes received and throughput are considered for investigating simulation scenario by varying network size with 10 mps node mobility. Also simulation has been carried out by varying mobility for scenario with 50 nodes.
