A mobile ad hoc network (MANET) is a collection of mobile nodes that is connected through a wireless medium forming rapidly changing topologies. A collection of mobile nodes that form a network without any fixed infrastructure. Therefore, routing in MANET is a critical task due to highly dynamic environment. Efficient Routing Protocols will make MANET reliable. The routing protocols in MANET classified into three categories proactive (Table driven), reactive (On demand) and Hybrid routing protocols. But we will discuss Proactive routing protocols DSDV and WRP. In This paper provides an overview of these protocols by presenting their characteristics, functionality, benefits and then their comparative analysis parameters. These protocols will be measured with suitable metrics.
