Mobile Ad hoc Network (MANET) is a collection of wireless mobile nodes that dynamically form a network temporarily without any support of central management. Routing in Mobile ad hoc network is extremely challenging because of its limited bandwidth, battery constraints, routing overhead, asymmetric link, speed, scalability, packet loss and quality of services. The widely accepted existing routing protocols are designed to accommodate the needs of such self-organized networks. The protocol to be chosen must cover all states of a specified network and never is allowed to consume too much network resources by protocol overhead traffic. This paper deals with the classification of Mobile ad hoc routing protocols and also presents some specified protocols according to that classification.
