Abstract: Wireless Ad-Hoc Network is a collection of wireless mobile nodes without using any centralized access point forming a temporary network. All nodes move randomly and are capable of discovering and maintaining the routes between them. Applications of MANETs include, but are not limited to, military operations, security, emergency, and rescue operations, among other applications where intense utilization of a communication networks is available for a very limited time. In wireless ad-hoc networks, routing algorithm is necessary to find specific routes between source and destination. This paper presents a performance evaluation of proactive and reactive protocols DSDV and DSR based on the metrics throughput and packet delivery fraction. Also to improve the performance of DSR a simple stability model is used. The stability of the route is analyzed by the received signal strength.
