"Some misleading Info" - by Anonymous on 11-MAY-2010

He talks about IGRP but calls it Internet Group Routing Protocol.  We know it is actually Interior Gateway Routing Protocol.  Also says all routers use routing information protocol and one in particular, RIP.  I think he means all routers use a routing protocol.  Can be confusing to someone new to routing.
