TCP is a transport layer protocol used for reliable transmission of data packets from one end to other. One of the important functionality of TCP is to control congestion in the network. Congestion can be controlled through the window based mechanism of TCP. TCP comes with many variants Newreno, Vegas and FullTCP (two-way TCP). In this, TCP variants such as Newreno and Vegas including FullTCP protocol is analyzed using ad hoc on demand distance vector (AODV), dynamic source routing (DSR) and destination sequenced distance vector (DSDV) routing protocols using grid topology. The simulation result using NS2 shows that performance of FullTCP protocol is better than Newreno and Vegas irrespective routing protocol used.
