"A Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) is self-organized wireless network which are able to connect on a wireless medium without the use of an infrastructure or any centralized administration. The mobile nodes perform both as a host and a router forwarding packets to other nodes routing in these network is highly complex nodes within each other's radio range communication directly via wireless links while those that are far apart use other nodes as relays in a multi-hop routing fashion. This paper present performance comparison of four mobile ad-hoc network routing protocols i.e. Ad-hoc On-demand Distance Vector (AODV), Dynamic Source Routing (DSR), IntrAzone Routing Protocol (IARP) using Qualnet 5.0.2."
