IEEE 802.11 is a standard for mobile ad hoc networks (MANET), implemented with various different protocols. Destination-Sequenced Distance-Vector Routing (DSDV) is one of the several protocols of IEEE 802.11 intended to provide various Quality of Service (QOS) parameters under acceptable range. To avoid the collision and interference the MAC protocol has only two solutions, one, to sense the physical carrier and second, to use the RTS/CTS handshake mechanism. But with the help of these methods DSDV is not free from the problem of hidden nodes like other several protocols. Under the hidden node environment, performance of DSDV depends upon various factors. The position of receiver and sender among the other nodes is very crucial and it affects the performance. Under the various situations the DSDV is simulated with the help of NS2 and the outcomes are discussed.
