An ad hoc network is a group of movable wireless nodes that wants to share or exchange the information without any fixed infrastructure or centralized control. Ad hoc network is a self-configuring network of movable devices which may be connected by a wireless links. The union of these mobile devices forms an arbitrary topology. Due to very high dynamic environment nature of MANET, routing is a very crucial task for measuring the performance. A number of protocols have been familiarized to be rectified the routing mechanism which can find the path between any source host to destination host within the network. This paper focuses on the most popular and widely used Ad hoc On-demand Distance Vector (AODV) reactive MANETs routing protocol with two different flag settings.
