Ad hoc networks are a temporary network that consists of a set of similar mobile nodes that move freely and independently and communicate with other node via wireless links. The performance of ad hoc wireless network routing protocol is increased when the motion of mobile nodes is reduced while considering the performance factors such as packet delivery ratio and routing overhead. The gateway can be considered as centrally located nodes where the flow of traffic is very high. Packet delays are for AODV & DSR is increased when the mobility is reduced because of centrally located gateway nodes.
