The history of wireless networks started in the 1970s and the interest has been growing ever since. Due to mobility of nodes, dynamic topology of the network, lack of centralized mechanism makes MANET more vulnerable. One of the main issues in ad-hoc networks is to develop a routing protocol which must be capable of handling very large number of nodes with limited bandwidth and power availability. The performance of these routing protocols is evaluated with respect to routing throughput, packet delivery ratio and end to end delay in different scenarios.
