Recent research efforts in mobile ad hoc networks have concentrated on examining the behaviour of TCP Reno over various ad hoc routing protocols and have suggested a number of extensions to improve its performance. TCP Vegas, which takes a proactive approach to congestion avoidance, has not so far been examined as a viable alternative to TCP Reno in wireless environments and no effort has been made to analyse its performance over routing protocols for MANETs. This paper evaluates using extensive simulation experiments the performance behaviour of TCP Vegas over a proactive (destination sequenced distance vector) and two reactive (dynamic source routing and ad hoc on demand distance vector) routing protocols and compares it against that of TCP Reno.
