MANET is a self organized and self configurable network where the mobile nodes move arbitrarily. Routing is a critical issue in MANET and hence the focus of this paper along with the performance analysis of routing protocols. He growing interest in mobile ad hoc network technique has resulted in many routing protocol proposal. The objective of this paper is to create taxonomy of the mobile ad hoc routing protocols, and to survey and compare representative examples for each class of protocols. The authors compared three types of routing protocols i.e. proactive, reactive and hybrid. The performance of all these routing protocols is analyzed by Q0S parameters. All the MANET routing protocols are explained in a deep way with QoS metrics.
