Abstract: In Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET), routing is one of the most important problems and is widely studied in the world. Routing greatly affects performance of the network. In this paper, we compare performance of two famous protocols the Ad hoc On-Demand Distance Vector Routing (AODV) and Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) in terms of Packet Delivery Fraction, Delay, Routing overhead and Nomalize Routing Load. Simulation results show that the AODV’ packet delivery fraction outperforms that of the DSR in some cases. Our results also show that AODV‘Delay is less than DSR but AODV’Routing overhead and Nomalize Routing Load are more than the corresponding results from the DSR.
