In Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET), routing protocols rely on asymmetric links so the received information for one connection is not useful at all for the other one. In this paper, there are two approaches; the first approach is a simulation of MANET with many nodes in one network based FTP traffic. The second approach is a simulation of the combination between Wi-Fi and WiMAX wireless technologies in one network based on the IEEE 802.11 and IEEE 802.16 standards respectively. For these two approaches, the simulation considers the situation that the MANET receives traffic from another network via a common gateway. In addition, the mobile nodes are randomly placed in the network that will provide the possibility of multi-hop routes from a node to another.
