Routing is a challenging issue in mobile ad-hoc network. Concerning routing various solutions have been reported. In this context, only few of the proposed solutions are commonly evaluated and less attention has been paid to mention some other schemes. The contribution of this paper is to critically analyze most of the routing protocols which are reported in the available literature. This will help in having a wider understanding of the problem domain and can also be used to develop or some new or to extend already proposed schemes.
