The routing protocol DumbAgent has been widely seen in the different field of MANET. In the OSI model Mac Layer plays the important role. Here we simulate the different routing protocol with different parameters. Some Routing protocols were gathered in a literature study, and four of them were selected to be studied further. The selected Routing protocols are AODV, DSR, DSDV and DumbAgent. Single Hope Protocol DumbAgent is using as routing protocol in MANET. We begin the analysis of AODV, DSR, DSDV and DumbAgent. In the first section we analyzed varying 10 nodes with different parameters like Throughput, average End to End Delay, Normalized routing load, and Packet Delivery Fraction. In the second section we discuss varying 50 nodes with same parameters.The results of the simulations, in forms of throughput, average End to End Delay, Normalized routing load, and Packet Delivery Fraction, were gathered and analyzed further to be able to provide a clear understanding of each protocol, and the behavior of DumbAgent routing protocols in general.
