MANET (Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork) forms a temporary network of wireless mobile nodes without any infrastructure where all nodes are allowed to move freely, configure themselves and interconnect with its neighbors to perform peer to peer communication and transmission. TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) offers reliable, oriented connection and mechanism of end to end delivery. This paper provides the review and comparison of existing variants of TCP for instance: the TCP Tahoe, the TCP Reno, the TCP New Reno, the Lite, the Sack, the TCP Vegas, Westwood and the TCP Fack.
