In Mobile wireless communication and computing technologies, Mobile Adhoc Networks (MANETs) has growing demands in various applications which has also caused high and complicated security issues in transmission communication wireless networks are sensitive to problems like data tampering and dropping attacks less focused and addressed. This paper has enhanced the accepted protocol due to its ability to adapt rapidly in dynamic network environment with minimum overhead and small management packet size protocol named AODV with ADEHSAM. Our proposed work addresses the main issue breaking links in MANET caused by attacks by outperforming ADEHSAM in terms of normalizing overhead required in many other method to avoid attacks and throughput as well as number of broken links which shows ADEHSAM better than EHSAM.
