    Static route = specific/specified route.

    Its entered as: destination network address, subnet mask of destination network, gateway (IP address of next hop router). A metric (usually hop count) can also be specified.

    Example: 172.20.0.0 255.255.255.0 172.17.0.1

    The example is saying to get to the 172.20.0.0/24 network use 172.17.0.1 as the gateway.


    Theres also dynamic routing protocols like RIP, RIPv2, IGRP, EIGRP, IS-IS, and BGP. Tomato only supports static, RIP, and RIPv2.

    Routing table is what a router uses to determine which route to use to get to a destination.
