There appears to be a problem with this page; it refers to the link between "nodes B and B" being down, but that doesn't make sense. It is probably supposed to say "nodes B and C", but because I am not familiar with this topic I don't want to make the edit myself.

It also seems to reference a network diagram for a four-node network ABCD that is not included anywhere on the page.

something wrong

There should be 5 network nodes

not mentioned in the pciture —Preceding unsigned comment added by Dilan2005 (talkcontribs) 05:32, 28 February 2008 (UTC)

Definitly there's something wrong!!!! it makes no sense at all , in the diagram there's three unnamed nodes and the topic is about 5!!! —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:08, 23 March 2008 (UTC)

BGP not a distance vector routing protocol[edit]

The article reads "Newer distance-vector routing protocols (BGP, EIGRP, DSDV, Babel) have built-in loop prevention"... BGP uses path vector routing though... Sorry, but don't have time to come up with an appropriate edit right now, but put it out there as something people should be aware of. (talk) 13:38, 16 July 2011 (UTC)

Picture not really applicable[edit]

Router A has two routes two router C so how could a routing loop occur? This image will create great confusion. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Johnmacward (talkcontribs) 17:05, 23 October 2010 (UTC)
