A Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) is a temporary wireless network composed of mobile nodes, in which an infrastructure is absent. If two mobile nodes are within each other's transmission range, they can communicate with each other directly; otherwise, the nodes in between have to forward the packets for them. Several routing protocols have already been proposed for ad hoc networks. This paper suggests an approach to utilize location information obtained by using DLRDPF (Dynamic Located Routing and Detection Protocol Far), if the destination is remote and DLRPL (Dynamic Located Routing and Detection Protocol Local), if the destination is local.
