This does not belong in Cisco Routing and Switching since it doesn't have anything to do with Cisco... moved to Tech Discussions.
The routing table simply tells the router how to get to certain subnets. For example, if you have an entry like this in your routing table:
10.254.1.0 255.255.255.0 192.168.1.1
That would typically mean that the system can reach subnet 10.254.1.0/24 via the router 192.168.1.1... make sense?
