The need for ad hoc networking; has been tremendously brought to limelight by the various global communication demands ranging from disaster relief, military and academic usage to several commercial applications. The preference of Dynamic Source Routing protocol (DSR) over other ad hoc routing protocols has to do with its on-demand and non-periodic activity, hence can guarantee a reasonable extent of reliable and optimal routing. However, some conflicting ad hoc routing issues such as dynamic topology, limited transmission range, routing overheads among other factors hinder effective ad hoc communication thereby introducing inefficient path deviations, delays and packet losses. The DSR protocol thus is analyzed using animations and an ad hoc DSR-enabled network designed with the Matlab Interactive tool QualNet Simulator respectively. A triangular mesh theory is implied to create a model for comparative analysis with the conventional DSR protocol. The failure probabilities obtained from the model are graphically analyzed using Matlab to bring into view some evaluated improvements
