Ad-hoc networks has become a hot topic in the research world. Routing in ad-hoc networks has faced so many problems due to the peculiar nature of ad-hoc environments. In this paper, a new routing protocol based on source routing and zone based routing is proposed. Proactive Source Routing protocol (PSR) is a method to reduce overhead in ad hoc networks by making use of BFSTs (Breadth First Spanning Trees). Zone Routing Protocol (ZRP) uses partition based routing. It uses source routing inside a zone and on-demand routing outside the zone.
