Ad Hoc Networks are transmission networks in the structure of wireless networks that consist of many mobile hosts. They do so without the support from other communication infrastructures like Base Stations, and directly use wireless networks for data-transmission. This paper provides a general explanation of related protocols for setting up routes and their possible problems. In addition, related researches are described with their method of solving problems and reducing the possibility of problems occurring. Then, a novel constructive protocol called Partition-Timing Routing Protocol (PTR) is presented. If any covered node needs to transmit data to others outside the scope, it has to be managed by a core node. This protocol is able to adjust neighboring nodes covered in the scope, to select certain nodes to be their own core node. In addition, the timing for updating and adjusting the data of the covered scope is different from other methods, and at the same time it reduces the load of the entire network and makes it more flexible.
