MANET Overview The new generation network that includes the wireless devices which are able to move freely or independently in random directions and speed with regulation of any authority and connected through the wireless links can be termed as ad-hoc networks. Fast expansion of wireless communication technology and the broad usage of mobile communication tools, wireless ad hoc networks are getting more and more consideration. Nowadays, wireless ad hoc networks are not only used in military, but also been applied to civilian application, including home area networks, mobile communication networks, and so on. With the widespread rapid development of computers and the wireless communication, the mobile computing has already become the field of computer communications in high-profile link. An Ad hoc network is a collection of mobile nodes, which forms a temporary network without the aid of centralized administration or standard support devices regularly available as conventional networks. These nodes generally have a limited transmission range and, so, each node seeks the assistance of its neighboring nodes in forwarding packets and hence the nodes in an Ad hoc network can act as both routers and hosts. Thus a node may forward packets between other nodes as well as run user applications….
