A routing protocol is designed considering a particular environment all the time which is not possible in the case of practical ad hoc networks. Because of the uncertainty in topological rate of change, mobility model, and terrain condition, the performance is severely degraded. So the concept of assigning single routing protocol does not address the problem of most modern day mobile networks. Instead, the feedback-based routing protocol which is highly adaptable in changing environment is more suitable and this concept has been proposed in this paper. The mathematical modeling of feedback parameters have been designed and analyzed for the highly unstable networks. Some of the parameters we measure here are network connection ratio, end-to-end connectivity, packet delivery ratio, and number of nodes. Those are functionally related with the routing parameter.
