The TCP/IP protocol associates a different IP address to each node in a network that allows different nodes in a network to communicate properly. Wired or wireless networks with infrastructure have a server or node acting as such which correctly assigns IP addresses, but in wireless ad-hoc networks there is no such centralized server. Therefore, a protocol is needed to perform this task of network configuration automatically, as networks may change their topology dynamically and spontaneously.
