A mobile ad-hoc network (MANET) is a decentralised network made up of nodes that move in the pattern of the mobility model specified in the network. Because MANET does not have a centralised system, each node can serve as a router, and with nodes in a random movement at a high speed the quality of signal transmission in the network can be affected. Routing protocols form an integral part of any network whether ad hoc or infrastructure based. In MANET, there are two main categories of routing protocols namely: reactive and proactive protocols. In this paper performance of a proactive protocol (OLSR) has been investigated under two different physical layer modes: Direct Spread Sequence Spectrum (DSSS) and Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) to determine which medium provides more efficiency in data transmission under a highly unpredictable mobility model.
