Objective: To present the operational features and to make a comparative study of four major dynamic addresses based routing protocols of mobile ad hoc networks. Further, we discuss the strengths and challenges in dynamic address rout - ing protocol designs. Methods/Statistical Analysis: In this paper, we have used packet forward strategy to compare four routing protocols and we have also discussed the operational features of dynamic based routing protocols through their network architecture. Findings: Dynamic addressing scheme has been proposed which uses the routing address instead of the node address for selecting the routes in the network. In this scheme, mobile nodes having dynamic routing address is done i.e., its change with movement of the node to reflect the node’s position in the network topology. Application/ Improvements: This study provides new challenges and future research directions to enhance the scalability of MANET using dynamic address based routing protocol.
