Mobile Ad hoc Network is a collection of mobile nodes in which the wireless links are frequently broken down due to mobility and dynamic infrastructure. Routing is a significant issue and challenge in ad hoc networks. In Mobile ad hoc network, due to mobility of nodes network topology change frequently and thus, routing become challenging task to transfer the data from source to destination. A variety of routing protocols with varying network conditions are analyzed to find an optimized route from a source to some destination. This paper is based on performance comparison of two popular mobile ad-hoc network routing protocols using simulator i.e. DSR, ADOV. On the network simulation platform, a systematically simulation and research has been carried out on the performance of two routing protocols, and how the network environments impact on the performance of routing protocol.
