Objectives: The main objective is to propose a Potential and Proficient Relay Node Selection (PPRS) Mechanism for progressing MANET Performance. Method/Analysis: Although, Routing issues are under constant study for many years now already. The literature shows that the issue of performance lacking in highly dynamic MANETs has not been completely eliminated. Consequently, the main method adapted by PPRS mechanism is the individual next hop selection consecutively along with the estimation of success probability for selecting that node. Findings: The consequent and persistent next hop selection builds up MANET routes while assuring great communication statistics even under highly dynamic conditions. Novelty/Improvement: The performance of the PPRS mechanism is contrasted with existing EDEAR mechanism using simulations in the network simulator.
