Various ad-hoc routing protocols has their own advantages depending on different network conditions. Thus the positive side of each protocol can be carefully used to evaluate the optimal solution. AODV is very efficient reactive protocol. The efficient path for routing in mobile ad hoc network is most essential. The existing AODV protocol can be enhanced to select the optimal path from different paths available in the network, so that the communication between the mobile nodes can be secure, direct and should be congestion free. The addition of few fields to the packet format of AODV can be used to improve the performance of the AODV.
