Wireless network is a network set up by using radio signal frequency to communicate among computers and other network devices.
Sometimes it’s also referred to as Wi-Fi network or WLAN [1]. With the advances of wireless communication technology, a mobile ad hoc
network (MANET) is comprised of mobile hosts that can communicate with each other using wireless links. It is also possible to have access to
some hosts in a fixed infrastructure, depending on the kind of mobile ad hoc network available. The wireless communication medium does not
have a foreseeable behavior as in a wired channel [2]. On the contrary, the wireless communication medium has variable and unpredictable
characteristics. This paper focuses on flooding; the source node broadcasts its packet to all its neighboring nodes. The goal of this paper for
working on homogenous to heterogeneous networks and improve the network connectivity among the neighboring nodes. We analyze the
performance and discuss the flooding techniques by using AODV and DSDV protocols. We demonstrate through simulations that our protocols
used in this proposed work provide good performance and incur a significantly smaller congestion. This paper shows that the proposed
mechanisms improve the Throughput and significantly enhance the network performances in terms of delay.
