In this paper a performance study of the service differentiation mechanism 'stateless wireless adhoc networks (SWAN)', proposed for mobile adhoc networks (MANETs), is first carried out with adhoc on-demand distance vector (AODV), dynamic source routing (DSR) and associativity based routing (ABR) protocols. The paper then investigates any possible performance advantage by making SWAN benefit out of the features of the routing protocol The end-to-end probing mechanism of SWAN is reduced to probing the routing protocol within the source node. The burden of estimating the bottleneck bandwidth is thus passed on to the routing protocol.
