A mobile ad hoc network (MANET) is a collection of wireless mobile hosts forming a temporary network without the aid of any stand-alone infrastructure or centralized administration. Mobile Ad-hoc networks are self organizing and self-configuring multichip wireless networks where, the structure of the network changes dynamically. A routing protocol in MANET should fairly distribute the routing tasks among mobile hosts. Most current routing protocols for mobile Adhoc networks consider the shortest path with minimum hop count as optimal route without any consideration of any particular node’s traffic and thus degrading the performance by causing serious problems in mobile node like congestion, power depletion and queuing delay. Therefore it is very attractive to investigate Routing protocols which use a Routing Metric to Balance Load in Adhoc networks. We present various load Balanced Routing protocols for efficient data transmission in MANETs.
