Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) is a network with structure less self organizing an autonomous system of mobile nodes which are connected by wireless links. In this paper, an attempt has been made to compare the performance of three MANET routing protocols, such that pro-active routing protocol: OLSR (Optimized Link State Routing protocol), reactive routing protocol: AODV (Ad-hoc On-demand Distance Vector), hybrid routing protocol: GRP (Geographic Routing Protocol) by using two different applications i.e. high definition video conferencing and high load FTP generating different types of data in the networks under different nodes densities (20, 40, 60 and 80) in the networks.
