This paper aims to compare performance of some routing protocols for Mobile Ad-Hoc networks (MANET’s). A Mobile Ad-Hoc Network (MANET) is a collection of wireless mobile nodes forming a temporary network without using any centralized access point, infrastructure, or centralized administration. To establish a data transmission between two nodes, typically multiple hops are required due to the limited transmission range. Mobility of the different nodes makes the situation even more complicated. Multiple routing protocols especially for these conditions have been developed during the last years, to find optimized routes from a source to some destination. This paper presents performance evaluation of three different routing protocols i.e. LANMAR, LAR1 and Fisheye in variable pause times. Performance evaluation of these three protocols is based on Average end to end delay, TTL based hop count and Packet delivery ratio.
