Mobile Ad-hoc Networks (MANETS) are infrastructure less self-organizing and self-configuring network. The nodes in MANETS are highly mobile and the routing mechanisms of these may vary depending on various applications. This poses serious challenges to routing and reliability. Reliability and reachability are the two important terms related to dissemination of data in MANETs. This paper studies the AODV protocol in MANET. And also try to understand the multiple connections in MANET under various situations. Several issues have been identified in the creation of multiple connections. The prominent issue recognized is the bandwidth of a node in creation of multiple connections. This poses major concern in connection establishment and connection maintenance. This paper also proposes a new idea of improving the simultaneous multiple connections with the consideration of bandwidth of each node.
