Abstract : In this paper, we evaluate the performance of two MANET routing protocols under varying traffic, density and mobility conditions. We observe, that a rather large fraction of the traffic being carried on the Internet today carries TCP. Thus, Internet traffic has inheritly different characteristics than that of CBR traffic, which is the commonly used traffic type for evaluating MANET routing protocol performance. Hence, in this paper, we extend our evaluations of the two protocols to include the performance of both TCP and CBR traffic. We find, that testing a protocol using CBR traffic is not a good indicator for the same protocols performance when subject to TCP traffic.
