A mobile ad-hoc network (MANET) is composed of mobile nodes without any infrastructure. Mobile nodes selforganize to form a network over radio links. The goal of MANETs is to extend mobility into the realm of autonomous, mobile and wireless domains, where a set of nodes form the network routing infrastructure in an ad-hoc fashion. The majority of applications of MANETs are in areas where rapid deployment and dynamic reconfiguration are necessary and wired network is not available. Due to their time varying nature of the topology of these networks traditional routing methods cannot be directly used .In this paper a number of routing protocols which are used in MANETS are studied and compared on a range of parameters.
