Abstract: A mobile ad hoc network is a collection of autonomous mobile nodes that communicate with each other over wireless links. It is seen that mobile ad hoc networks will be an integral part of next generation networks because of its flexibility, infrastructure less nature, ease of maintenance, auto configuration, self administration capabilities, and costs effectiveness. MANETs can operate without fixed infrastructure and can survive rapid changes in the network topology. They can be studied formally as graphs in which the set of edges varies in time. The main method for evaluating the performance of MANETs is simulation. In this paper, an attempt has been made to compare three well know protocols AODV, DSR and TORA by using two performance metrics packet delivery fraction and end to end delay by varying the number of nodes and pause time with identical environment conditions. The comparison has been done by using simulation tool NS2 which is the main simulator, NAM (Network Animator) and excel graph which is used for preparing the graphs from the trace files.
