The main goal of an ad hoc network routing protocol is to establish correct and efficient route between a pair of mobile nodes so that messages delivered within the active route timeout interval. Route should be discovered and maintained with a minimum of overhead and bandwidth consumption. Routing is a key factor for transfer of packets from source to destination. That is Routing is a process of determining a path between source and destination upon request of data transmission. Reactive routing protocols are well performing in MANET. The authors are going to discuss the related issues and advantages and disadvantages of Reactive routing protocols and measurement based performance of reactive protocols in wireless networks.
