Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) is an efficient on-demand routing protocol for mobile ad-hoc networks (MANET). It depends on two main procedures: Route Discovery and Route Maintenance. Route discovery is the procedure used at the source of the packets to discover a route to the destination. Route Maintenance is the procedure that discovers link failures and repairs them. In this research paper the comparison of WLAN and MANET is done using DSR protocol.
