Objective: The purpose of the paper is to compare the various protocols of different categories in Mobile Adhoc Networks (MANETs). Analysis: The wireless networks are promising as future technology which will be going to be the highest demanded source of communication. MANETs is one of the wireless technologies which make use of intermediate nodes in order to transport the data from the starting place to destination. All the transitional joints operate as a router which can decide the path for the movement of the data packets. Findings: This paper helps us in revising the available technologies on the basis of various parameters illustrated in the last section of the paper. A healthy comparison is made between AODV, DSR, DSDV, TORA, CGSR, WRP and ZRP on the basis of various parameters. These algorithms are compared in an exhaustive way in section 7 by considering 16 parameters like time complexity, communication complexity, advantages and disadvantages etc. as can see in table 2. Applications: After indepth knowledge, one can easily apply these protocols in various applications like military rescue, Pocket switched networks, and personal application networks etc. according to their characteristics.
