Mobile ad hoc networks are type of wireless networks in which any kind of infrastructure is not used, i.e. there are no infrastructures such as routers or switches or anything else on the network that can be used to support the network structure and the nodes has mobility. The routing is particularly a challenging task in MANETs that selecting paths in a network along which to send network traffic. In this paper, the performance analysis is carried out on Ad-hoc On-demand Distance Vector (AODV), Limited Hop Count AODV (LHC-AODV), Optimized Link State Routing (OLSR), Unnecessary Loop OLSR (UL-OLSR) and Destination Sequenced Distance Vector (DSDV) protocols using NS2 simulator.
