One of the popular wireless network architectures is mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET) which can be deployed easily in almost any environment, without any underlying backbone and infrastructure support. The MANET Nodes (Routers and Hosts) can move randomly and re-organize themselves into an arbitrary network. In this paper, an efficient DSDV (Eff-DSDV) Protocol is proposed for Ad Hoc networks. Eff-DSDV overcomes the problem of stale routes, and thereby improves the performance of standard DSDV. The proposed protocol has been implemented in the NCTUns Simulator and performance comparison has been made with conventional DSDV using performance metrics like packet-delivery ratio, end-end delay, dropped packets, routing overhead. It has been found from the analysis that the performance of Eff-DSDV is superior to regular DSDV.
