Ad hoc networks are characterized by dynamic topology caused by node mobility, multihop wireless connectivity and channel non-deterministic behavior (interference, multipath, hidden and exposed node problem make the wireless channel very difficult to predict). The behavior of ad hoc networks must be analyzed in detail as a result of the pairing of the selected MAC and routing protocols. We focus our studies in the routing layer while closely observing the developments in MAC layer. We present and examine the characteristics of a new hybrid adaptive routing protocol based on the ZRP protocol.
