Routing means, to choose a suitable path from source to destination. The architecture of ad hoc wireless network consists of mobile nodes for communication without the use of fixed-position routers. The communication between them takes place without centralized control. Routing is a very crucial issue, so to deal with this routing algorithms must deliver the packet in significant delay. There are different protocols for handling the mobile environment like AODV (Ad hoc On-demand Distance Vector routing), DSR (Dynamic Source Routing) and OLSR (Optimized Link-State Routing). But this paper will focus on performance of AODV and OLSR routing protocols. The performance of these protocols is analyzed on two metrics: time and throughput.
