Mobile Ad hoc Network (MANET) is the collection of the mobile nodes without the aid of fixed infrastructure. The communication in MANET is therefore completely dependent on the nodes of the network. For the efficient working of the network various routing protocols have been developed. These protocols improve the efficiency of MANET by providing the path between distant nodes through multi-hop links. The performance of the protocols is affected by the various factors. One such factor is the mobility of the nodes. This paper provides the comparative analysis of various routing protocols used in day to day scenario under the effect of various mobility models: viz File, Group and Random Way Point Mobility Model. The results show significant impact of mobility models on performance of routing protocols.
