Mobile ad hoc network is a specific type of wireless networks in which nodes may move. This type of network is established without any definite structure and they are mostly applied in wars, rescue missions in damaged area, conferences and so on. Several routing protocols have been proposed matching characteristics of such networks among which AODV is an important one. In this paper, two modified versions of AODV i.e. J-AODV and I-AODV are investigated and their performances are compared to conventional AODV. The obtained results demonstrated that J-AODV achieves better performance comparing to AODV as it improves average delay and network operational power.
