In this paper, we present a comprehensive statistical experiment and identify the key factors and interactions that impact network performance over mobile ad hoc networks. We use the design of experiments software named Design-Ease to establish the mathematical model for analyzing the set of simulation results from ns2. A variety of important parameters for network performance including routing protocol, node density, node speed, traffic load and pause time are considered to capture the vital factors and interactions for network performance by measuring the packet delivery ratio, average delay, discovery time and recovery time in which latter two are the crucial metrics for ad hoc self-organising performance measurement. With the simulation and analysis results, we conclude the key factors and interactions which influence the specific network performance and suggest which aspects the designers should focus on for improving the given network performance
