The characteristic of changing topology without a fixed infrastructure and lacking of any centralization is Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET). The communication between mobile nodes uses multihop wireless links. In the network; nodes act as router and forwarding data packets to other nodes behaving as intermediate node. Routing protocols plays an important role to facilitate communication within the network. In this paper the authors have compared different transmission power by varying antenna height. Simulation results shown in AODV (Adhoc On-demand Distance Vector) routing protocol in term of the metrics: throughput, average end to end delay, average jitter.
