With recent performance increase in the area of wireless mobile communications, mobile ad-hoc networks are playing a wide spread usage in the areas of military and other applications. But this mobile ad-hoc network does not have any centralized authorities like an access-point or a router as in case of wireless and wired networks to control and take care of routing. Thus routing has become a greater challenge to these types of networks. This paper proposes a new reputation based routing protocol based on DSR (Dynamic Source Routing) and through simulation results proves that the proposed method performs well compared to normal DSR.
