Mobile Adhoc Network ( MANET) is a dynamic network formed by a collection of wireless nodes. As it is a dynamic network all the nodes involved in the network must play the role of a router at some point of time. Path must be constructed by each node if it needs to communicate with the other node. A node can find path to other node either by a proactive or a reactive or a hybrid routing protocol. Many mobility models and protocols are available to find path. Each mobility model and protocol has its own strength and weakness pertain to MANET environment. Functionality of discussed and advantages and disadvantages are compared.
