An ad hoc network is a group of wireless moveable nodes dynamically establishing a temporary network deprived of the utilizing of any standing network infrastructure or centralized administration. A number of routing protocols like DSR, AODV, DSDV and TORA have been studied and evaluated in this paper. In this paper an attempt has been done to compare the two prominent on-demand reactive routing protocols for ad hoc networks: DSR and AODV, along with the traditional proactive DSDV protocol. The review has shown that the On-demand protocols, AODV and DSR perform significantly better than the table-driven DSDV protocol.
