This paper aims at sensing the network, and detects the border nodes, the researcher use NS2, in order to represent, simulate and calculate the delivery ratios of the distributed packets which accordingly will help to detect the border nodes. The importance of this research comes from detecting the border nodes without depending on other resources, since Ad hoc networks coordinates are virtual. The researchers analysed the results of the trace file that came as an output of carrying out simulations in Network simulator (NS2) for the evaluation of the ratios. The methodology of this experiment depends on using the IEEE 802.11 MAC protocol. Flooding technique was used to send data packets through three scenarios: First, 5% of the nodes are randomly chosen to send their data packets per minute. In the second and third scenarios, the percentages of nodes that flood their data are 25% and 50% respectively.
