    Broadcasting is an essential operation in
    Mobile ad hoc Networks (MANETs) environments.
    It is used in the initial phase of route discovery
    process in many reactive protocols. Although
    broadcasting is simple, it causes the well known
    broadcast storm problem, which is a result of packet
    redundancy, contention and collision. A
    probabilistic scheme has been proposed to
    overcome this problem. This work aims to study the
    effect of network density and network mobility on
    probabilistic schemes using different thresholds
    (fixed, 2p, 3p and 4p) with the Pessimistic Linear
    Exponential Backoff (PLEB) algorithm and
    compare the results with the standard MAC. A
    number of simulation experiments have been
    conducted to examine the performance of the
    proposed PLEP under different operating
    conditions. The simulation results show that in
    dense networks the normalized routing load, delay
    and routing packets are high and the PLEB
    outperforms the standard MAC in terms of delay
