A mobile ad hoc network (MANET) is a self-configuring infrastructure less network of mobile devices connected by wireless and it getting popular means of data transfer these days. MANETs have become the subject of intensive research over the past decade. MANET is an autonomous system of mobile nodes and is free to move independently in any direction at varying speeds, and will therefore change its links to other devices frequently. Each node must forward traffic unrelated to its own use, and therefore be a router. Each flow from the source to the destination traverses multiple hops of wireless links. In the mobile ad hoc networks, due to the multi-hop of the data, the limited bandwidth and the dynamic changes of the network topology, the network performance is hindered. It is the need that quality of service has to be improved. Now days these types networks are gaining popularity in the form of wi-fi zones etc. MANETs are a kind of wireless ad hoc networks that usually has a routable networking environment on top of a Link Layer ad hoc network. The need has been felt to improve the services of MANET. In this paper an attempt is made to improve the quality of service QoS of MANET by reducing queuing delay in turn increasing throughput by proposing a new hybrid algorithm.
