Ad hoc wireless network is a self configurable infrastructure less network. The lack of infrastructure support in ad hoc networks makes them useful in various applications such as at the disaster site, highway, vast forest, battle field, oceans, etc. Since there is no centralized control in ad hoc network, each node can act as a source, a destination or a router. Ad hoc wireless networks therefore, experience congestion more than the wired networks, leading to jitter and high end to end delays

In this paper a G/G/1queuing network model is proposed togain insights into the end-to-end delay in a multi hop wireless ad hoc networks. Queuing network model is unique as it providesclosed form expressions for average end-to-end delay in multihop wireless ad hoc networks. NS2 simulation is conducted in order to verify and compare the theoretical results.
