An ad hoc wireless network is collection of two or more devices or nodes or terminals with wireless communications. Networking
capability can communicate with each other without the aid of any centralized administrator also the wireless nodes that can dynamically form a
network to exchange information without using any existing fixed network infrastructure. And its an autonomous system in which mobile hosts
connected by wireless links are free to be dynamically and some time act as routers at the same time. To facilitate communication within the
network, a routing protocol used to discover routes between nodes. The primary goal of such Ad hoc network routing protocol is correct and
efficient route establishment between a pair of nodes. so the messages may be delivered in a timely manner. Route construction should be done
with minimum of overhead and bandwidth consumption. in this paper we presents routing protocols for ad hoc networks and classify these
protocols based on a set of parameters. This paper provides an overview of different protocols by presenting their characteristics and
functionality, and then provides a classification of these different routing protocols available for the transmission in ad hoc networks. In this
paper we are presenting one example protocol for each category.
