WiMAX networks play an important role in modern era for transmitting data with minimal overhead and maximum possible speed. In this paper, the authors investigate different routing protocols and evaluate their performances on 802.16 WiMAX networks. The simulation results show that the reactive routing protocol AMODV protocol has the best performance in terms of the delivery fraction which outperforms the rest of the protocols. In addition, they also assert from the experiments that packet delay experienced by AMODV protocol is very low.
