Ad hoc mobile networks are composed of mobile nodes communicating through wireless medium, without any fixed backbone infrastructure. In these networks, congestion occurs in any intermediate node, when data packets travel from the source to the destination, and they incur high packet loss and long delay, which cause the performance degradation of a network. This paper proposes Proactive Routing with Early Congestion Detection (PRECD) in MANET. Initially PRECD constructs a non-congested neighbors' list, and finds a route to a destination.
