A mobile ad hoc network (MANET) is a wireless network that uses multi-hop peer-to-peer routing instead of static network infrastructure to provide network connectivity. There are no fixed routers- instead each node acts as router and forwards traffic from other nodes. We classified the number of attacks in the subsections and draw selfish node attack only. The selfish node interprets the packet data unit (PDU) and extracts the useful information, other unused information dropped in the wireless link. This attack degrades the performances of the network with increase of network load and delay. We here propose the system of MAC authentication by the Leader node of the network to prevent the Selfish Node entering the Network. The performance of the proposed algorithm herein is studied by simulating the Ad-Hoc based networks. The Simulation programs are using the OPNET, and the simulation scenarios present metrics of Network delay, Throughput and Network load
