A Mobile Ad-hoc Network is a kind of wireless network, and is a self configuring network of mobile nodes connected by wireless links. Various research organizations are working in the field of MANET and trying to adopt the protocols and technology in other applications as well. The mobility of nodes or power consumption are main concern in the Ad-hoc networks so The main aim of any ad-hoc network routing protocol is to meet the challenges of the dynamically changing topology and establish a correct and an efficient communication path between any two nodes with minimum routing overhead and bandwidth consumption. In this paper, an attempt has been made to compare three well know protocols AODV, DSR and DSDV by using three performance metrics Packet Collision, Packet Dropped and Throughput, the comparison has been done by using simulation tool NCTUns which is the main simulator.
