Mobile Ad hoc Network (MANET) is a frequent infrastructure less self- coordinating network, in which each and every mobile node works as a source, destination and a wireless relay. Such pattern of wireless network is produced by dynamic mobile nodes without any centralized or fixed or existing network infrastructure. In MANET, however, there is no static network infrastructure and mobile nodes do not possess accession to a centralized host to assume IDs or IP addresses. Moreover, owing to mobility of node, network partitions and combines are quick occurrences. These occurrences produce the possibility of fake addresses inside the network. Thus, a centralized scheme cannot be employed in those networks; a dispersed and dynamic mechanism is required for mobile nodes to adopt and preserve a unique ID or IP address in mobile networks. In this study, we proposed two protocols namely Fake ID Detection (FIDD) and Path Selection Routing protocol (PSR) in which the FIDD protocol is used to detect the fake id i.e., the duplicate packets and PSR protocol is used to select the alternate path when the current path became busy or failure and it frequently chooses an alternate path to continue the transmission without any interruption. Hence, the efficiency and life-time of the network can be increased. Finally, the overall performance of the network can be increased.
