RIP Routing Configuration Lab using Three Routers in Cisco Packet Tracer

In this tutorial we will learn how to configure rip routing using three routers.This rip routing configuration lab is done with the help of cisco packet tracer.If you are learning ccna or getting prepared for ccna certification exam then this tutorial will be beneficial for you.While writing this rip routing notes i will try to keep it as simple as possible.And i will explain this tutorial in few simple steps so that you can easily configure rip routing after reading this article.All IT or Electronic company use routers for networking purpose include Wipro,Infosys,HCL,IBM,Google,facebook to support there Network Infrastrusture and they use these routing protocols like rip routing,EIGRP,OSPF,BGP etc. But in this lab our focus will be on rip routing configuration.

Step 1:Draw the above rip routing topology diagram using 3 routers.

As you can see I have designed the topology in above image for RIP LAB.

Step 2: Assigned IP address on Both Computers as mentioned in the topology Diagram.

I am going to assign ip address and default gateway ip to both PC.

ip address on computer

pc and ip address

Step 3: Now assign IP Address on Router R1:

Here I have assigned IP Address and hostname to router R1:

Router(config)#host r1

r1(config)#int fa0/1

r1(config-if)#ip add

r1(config-if)#no shut



r1(config)#int fa0/0

r1(config-if)#ip add

r1(config-if)#no shut
Step 4:Assign IP address on Middle Router Now.



Router#config t

Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.

Router(config)#int fa0/0

Router(config-if)#ip add

Router(config-if)#no shut



Router(config)#int fa0/1

Router(config-if)#ip add

Router(config-if)#no shut

Step 5:Configure ip address on router R3:



Router#config t

Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.

Router(config)#host R3

R3(config)#int fa0/0

R3(config-if)#ip add

R3(config-if)#no shut



R3(config)#int fa0/1

R3(config-if)#ip add

R3(config-if)#no shut


Step 6: Configure RIP Routing on Router R1:

Remember while configuring RIP Routing we only need to tell about the directly connected network.And here router R1 is directly connected to network and only.

r1(config)#router rip

r1(config-router)#version 2



Step 7: Configure RIP Routing on Middle Router


Router(config)#router rip

Router(config-router)#version 2




Step 8: Configure RIP Routing on Router R3

R3(config)#router rip

R3(config-router)#version 2





You can check RIP Routing Table:

here i am on middle router now.

show ip route

You can check rip routing protocols.

I am running this command on middle router.


show ip protocols

Now Test connectivity from one pc to another.

ping command
