Mobile Ad-hoc network (MANET) is a non-infrastructure, self-configurable and decentralized network of autonomous mobile nodes which are capable for communication over wireless links. Routing is the main part for any wireless network and same is for MANET. There are two approaches for routing in MANET one is Proactive and another is Reactive. Zone routing protocol is a hybrid protocol means that it uses Proactive approach in its inter-zone whereas Reactive approach in its intra-zone. This work revolves around enhancement in Zone routing protocol in the area of fast route reconfiguration and route acquisition delay.
