This paper describes the architecture of a self-configuring multi-hop mobile network and analyse the performance of the ad-hoc routing protocols. A testbed is deployed to analyse the performance of the ad-hoc routing protocols in a self-configuring multi-hop environment. The testbed comprises of a set of mobile nodes and an Internet gateway. The mobility of the nodes and the resulting network topology are emulated. During the experiments, the mobile node move virtually around a specified area and communicated with the gateway by sending UDP packets. The routing between the MNs and the Internet gateway is established by the ad-hoc routing protocols namely AODV and OLSR. Based on the measurements obtained during the experiments, some of the well known performance metrics are calculated.
