Ad-hoc networks are basically self organizing and self configuring multi-hop mobile wireless network in which the information packets are transmitted in the manner as that in Massage Switching (store and forward) from a Transmitter to an arbitrary Receiver via intermediate Stations (nodes). This paper is for evaluation of AODV (Ad-hoc on demand distance vector) and DSDV (Destination sequence distance vector) routing protocols’ performance on the basis of different criteria for performance. Here, an attempt has been made to evaluate the performance of two well known routing protocols AODV, DSDV by using three performance metrics such as packet delivery ratio, throughput and Routing overheads. The Performance evaluation has been done by using simulation tool NS2 (Network Simulator) which is the main simulator.
