It is commonly known to the wireless research community that use of efficient routing algorithms in ad hoc networks offers a number of benefits. Some of them are: larger throughput, lower average end-to-end delay, decrement in the number of lost data packets and generally an improved network performance. This paper presents a comparative study of the ad-hoc routing protocols. In this paper, a comparison has been made in between different-different ad-hoc routing protocols (proactive, reactive and hybrid), which are: FSR (Fisheye State Routing), OLSR (Optimized Link State Routing protocols), AODV (Ad-hoc On-demand Distance Vector routing), DSR (Dynamic Source Routing), DYMO (DYnamic MANET On demand) and ZRP (Zone Routing Protocol).
