A mobile ad hoc network (MANET) is a dynamic wireless network that can be formed without the need for any pre-existing infrastructure in which each node can act as a router. One of the main challenges MANET is the design of robust routing algorithms that adapt to the frequent and randomly changing network topology. In this paper, we compare the performance of different protocols for ad hoc networks ad hoc on-demand distance vector routing (AODV), ad hoc on-demand multipath distant vector (AOMDV) routing. Therefore, we propose an entropy-based multipath routing protocol in AOMDV (EAOMDV). The performance differentials are analyzed using varying node mobility. Simulations demonstrate the performance benefits of our proposal EAOMDV over AOMDV in most movement scenarios.
