This paper aims to study and analyze lost packet tendencies for ad hoc wireless networks. Lost packets greatly influence all performance aspects of such a network. Moreover, lost or drop packets are directly involved in many active research fields concerning ad hoc network nowadays. Accordingly, investigating the various kinds of packets dropped more frequently in conjunction with critical network parameters, can result in very usefully conclusions. These conclusions can give new insights in designing new protocols and more importantly in cross-layer designs in order to enhance the performance of the whole network.
