Although there are several routing protocols for wireless sensor and actor networks (WSAN), none of them have became standard. Now, there are several standard protocols for mobile ad hoc networks (MANET) that have been developed for devices with higher computing features than the sensor nodes. On the other hand, one of the main characteristics of the MANET protocols is their scalability. In this paper, we show the performance of a WSAN, when MANET protocols are used, for several topologies. We will discuss and evaluate which standard protocol is the best one depending on the number of nodes in the topology and depending on their mobility. Finally we will show their comparison. As far as we know, there is not any performance comparison of MANET protocols such as the one presented in this paper.
