Abstract— In this paper, an Adaptive Receiver Power Rout¬ing (ARPR) protocol technique for Mobile Ad Hoc wireless network is proposed. The adaptive receiver power routing (ARPR) protocol evaluates the effect of environment, and signal path loss on a mobile ad hoc wireless network quality of service (QoS) and throughput performance. The proposed technique is incorporated into Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) protocol. Mathematical analysis supported by computer simulations is used to validate the scalability of the proposed technique. The simulation results showed that when ARPR is incorporated into DSR the throughput per¬formance increased by 62.5 %, compared to the conventional DSR protocol model, without ARPR. The simulation result also showed that the average received power for individual nodes was 1.0 × 10−10 watt for the proposed ARPR model and 5.0 × 10−2 watt for conventional model.
