A mobile ad hoc network is a collection of wireless mobile nodes dynamically forming a temporary network without the use of any existing network infrastructure. TCP/IP protocol plays an important role in developing communication systems and providing better and reliable communication capabilities in almost all networking environment. The paper aims to investigate the performance of the TCP congestion control variants in MANET and its behaviour with respect to Dynamic State Routing. TCP optimization in MANETs is a challenging issue because of some unique characteristics of congestion control. The results presented in this paper clearly indicate that the Dynamic State Routing achieves maximum throughput, higher packet delivery ratio and less average end to end delay when TCP congestion control agent used is TCP Vegas.
