The idea of ad hoc networking is gaining importance as more and more dynamic routing protocols have been designed and a lot of research with state of the art network traffic simulator has been carried out. Routing protocols solve many problems of ad hoc networks. In this paper we are aiming to provide a performance comparison of three routing protocols i.e. ADV, AODV and DSDV. NCTUns 6.0 is used as a simulator. The performance metrics for evaluating the protocols are number of packet dropped, number of packet collision and throughput.
