Jamming attack is main problem and this can affect the network by various ways. Sometimes jammer retransmits messages to create jam over network or sometimes jammers are radio jammer which disturbs communication by decreasing the signal to noise ratio. In previous researches various techniques are discussed to detect jamming. One way is to check the signal busy ratio. If channel is busy for long time that means there is a jam on network or it can be check by checking the threshold value. If threshold value exceeds up to some limit then there expect some jam on network. When the jam will detected then check will be performed on the node which will be creating jam. Node identity will be checked by calculating the distance and the message of that node will be checked to detect the retransmission and replays. If sequence number will same than attacker will be detected but if sequence number is different message content will be checked. To check the reason of retransmissions an additional message will be send to destination so that if re-transmissions are due to the network failure it can be detected.
