Routing protocols such as dynamic source routing can be used to determine the route from a node to another node. Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) is the self organized infrastructure less network which is formed by a collection of mobile nodes that communicate with each other via wireless links directly or with the help of intermediate nodes. These mobile nodes contain both transmitter and receiver in them. In this paper, the authors discuss the MANETs, Categories and various IDS with their limitations.
