MANET (Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork) is an independent collection of mobile nodes that communicate over quite bandwidth constrained wireless links. In Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs), the performance of various on-demand routing protocols significantly affected by the changing network topology.in the route discovery process, AODV (Ad-hoc On-demand Distance Vector) is the mostly studied on-demand routing protocol that uses single route reply packet with reverse path for answering to the source node. Due to increase in the variability of the network topology, the possibility of route reply packet loss increases & destroys the performance of the routing protocol.
