Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET) is collection of wireless nodes forming temporary network without any infrastructure, Ad-hoc networking is a computer communications concept. Here each node participating in the network acts as host and a router and therefore must forward packets for other nodes. Researches in this area are mostly simulation based, and in this paper we will be analyzing the performance of DWI-PBHRA routing protocol with the PBHRA. In the performance evaluation of the protocol, the protocols are tested under the realistic conditions including evaluating performance when applied to variable pause times and constant number of nodes we perform extensive simulations using NS-2 simulator.
