Routing Tables

Routing Tables

This lessons discusses the installation and configuring of routers and switches. When setting up routers and switches, the first thing we need to examine are routing tables. Routing tables allow a router to discover what the best path is to send packets and can be used to modify settings via the administrative portal on a router or on a particular cable. Routing tables can be one of two types:

  • Dynamic: automatically find routes using different protocols (i.e., EGP, IGP)
  • Static: set particular routes

This lesson also covers Spanning Tree Protocol (STP); which keeps multiple routers from forming loops.
