Abstract: Mobile ad hoc network has become popular in wireless network communication technology. Recently many researchers are studying based on new communication techniques, especially wireless ad hoc networks. This paper presents the performance of routing protocol for mobile ad hoc network (MANET). Routing is one of the challenging issues in mobile ad hoc network. Therefore, the performances of ad hoc routing protocols are tested with different mobile node numbers at different mobility speeds. We have made an attempt to compare different mobility models and provide an overview of their current research status in this paper. The main focus is on Random Waypoint Mobility Model and Realistic Mobility Model. Firstly, we present a survey of the characteristics, drawbacks and research challenges of mobility modeling. Secondly, the simulation results of routing protocols. They are also experimented by implementing a realistic mobility model. The proposed network area is specified to 800 × 800 square meter. The commonly used network simulator (NS2) has been utilized as a core simulator for this research.
