Mobile ad hoc network (MANET) is a self-configuring infrastructure less network of mobile nodes connected by wireless links -the union of which form a random topology. There are several IP routing protocols, with competing features, developed for wireless ad hoc networks. These protocols have varying qualities for different wireless routing aspects. It is due to this reason that choice of a correct routing protocol is critical. In this paper, two main questions are addressed. The first is
more » ... The first is 'Which routing protocol provides a better performance in mobile ad hoc Networks?' This question addresses the overall performance of each routing protocol investigated in this paper. The second question addresses the factors that influence the performance of these routing protocols. In this paper, Three protocols ad hoc on-Demand Distance Vector Routing (AODV) , Dynamic Source Routing (DSR), and Destination-Sequenced Distance Vector (DSDV) were compared in terms of Average End-to-End Delay, Average Throughput, Packet Delivery Ratio, Total Dropped Packets, and Normalized Routing Load in different environment; varying number of nodes and simulation Time. All simulation result implement at network simulator-2 (NS-2.35). Index Terms-Ad hoc on-demand distance vector routing (AODV), destination-sequenced distance vector (DSDV), dynamic source routing (DSR), and mobile ad hoc network (MANET), and network simulator 2 (NS2.35).
