Abstract: In this thesis the problem of routing is considered. This thesis addresses issues pertaining to Destination Sequenced Distance vector (DSDV) and Ad-hoc On-demand Distance Vector (AODV) routing protocol, which are used for efficient routing under different scenarios in Mobile Ad-hoc Network (MANET), which plays a critical role in places where wired network are neither available nor economical to deploy. My objective was to implement the two routing protocols using Network Simulators and run it for different number of nodes. Then I compared the two routing protocols for different network parameters and studied the efficient protocol under a particular scenario on the basis of two metrics, Packet delivery ratio and Routing load.
