Routing protocols are a critical aspect to performance in mobile wireless networks. The development of new protocols requires testing against well-known protocols in various sim- ulation environments. In this paper we present an overview of several well-known MANET routing protocols and the implementation details of the DSDV routing protocol in the ns-3 network simulator. We analyse DSDV routing perfor- mance under various scenarios and compare its performance with the other protocols implemented in ns-3, AODV and OLSR. Our results verify the implementation of DSDV and show performance comparable to that of OLSR.
