Mobile Ad hoc Network is a Network which contains mobile nodes that topology constantly changing. The mobile nodes can move freely from one place to another place. Most current ad-hoc routing protocols select paths that minimize hop count like AODV, DSDV and DSR .In ad hoc wireless networks; minimal hop count paths can have poor performance because they tend to include wireless links between distant nodes. These long wireless links can be slow or lossy, leading to poor throughput. Due to mobility the link between distant nodes is broken quickly. Therefore, the method can be considered in the routing that select nodes between the source and destination which are more stable than other node as intermediate nodes.
