MANET is an autonomous distributed system in which mobile nodes are of random nature. Establishing connection among the nodes is a challenging issue. In this paper, the authors have done a study on the various challenges of MANET which affects the performance of the network and by using spanning tree how it can be controlled. Spanning tree concept provides a loop free network where peer to peer connection is establishes very easily. This paper has study of multicasting and overhead challenges in network and various methods to handle it using spanning tree.
