Abstract: Routing protocols for mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) have been explored extensively in last few years. Much of this work is targeted at finding a feasible route from a source to a destination without considering current network traffic or application requirements. Routing may let a congestion happen which is detected by congestion control, but dealing with congestion in reactive manner results in longer delay, and unnecessary packet loss and requires significant overhead if a new route is needed. Routing should not be only aware of network coding, but also be aware to, network congestion. This paper present the survey of coding and congestion aware routing protocols for mobile ad-hoc network. This paper argue that network coding aware routing protocol in combination with congestion aware routing protocol allows MANET to operate in a more efficient manner and helps to deal with typical MANET issues such as . Congestion in the network and poor utilization of the network as well as various other issues that have been disregarded in previous MANET researches such as throughput and unreliable channel. By comparison and combination of coding and congestion aware routing mechanism can achieve shorter file downloading delays compared to an existing MANET protocol.
