An ad hoc network is a collection of autonomous mobile nodes to forming an instant multihop radio infrastructure-less network in a dynamic topology. Each node in Ad hoc network, functions as host and router at the same time, where maintaining connectivity in a decentralized manner by distributing the network control among the nodes. Many routing protocols for mobile ad-hoc networks are presented since last decade. Topology frequently changing, transmission power and asymmetric links are the main challenge that types of protocols is facing. This has led to development of many different routing protocols for networks. In this review work, we provided an overview of a wide range of routing protocols proposed in the literature till date. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first paper that studies nearly 52 existing routing protocols in Ad hoc Networks.
