Foundation Topics

This chapter introduces several straightforward concepts regarding how a router adds routes to its routing table without using a dynamic routing protocol. In particular, this chapter covers connected routes, including connected routes when a router uses LAN trunking. It also covers static routes, with some emphasis on how routers use special static routes called default routes. However, because this chapter is the first IP-centric chapter of this book, it begins with a brief review of two related topics: IP routing and IP addressing.


Note

The introduction to this book describes an alternate reading plan for readers pursuing the CCNA 640-802 exam, which you move back and forth between CCENT/CCNA ICND1 Official Cert Guide and this book. If you are using this plan, note that the first major section reviews topics from the ICND1 book. If you are following that reading plan, feel free to skip ahead to the section “IP Forwarding by Matching the Most Specific Route.”
