Abstract


A MANET (Mobile Ad-hoc network) is a self-configuring infrastructure less network of portable routes associated by wireless connections. All mobile node plays the role of a router moreover as a host. The topology of MANET is not stable. It is similar to the TCP/IP stack with little modification for end to end transmission. Routing is the challenging task in MANET because nodes moves freely and works as a host and router at the same time in different environment. Many researchers have proposed many routing protocols which work well in different conditions. This paper provides a survey of different reactive routing protocol in MANET.
