This paper introduces the very general concepts of ad hoc networks. It addresses the subject in four principle topics: routing, medium access, TCP/IP issues, and capacity. In routing, the main routing algorithms are illustrated. In medium access, the main medium access protocols are described. In TCP/IP issues, the aspects concerning the performance of TCP/IP in an ad hoc network are discussed. In capacity, some formulation concerning the capacity of the network is tackled. The aim of this article is to give an overview of ad hoc networks serving as a tutorial on the subject.
