I know this is probably a simple question, but for some reason I cannot think of a command. I am using RIPv2 configuration, and simply need to remove a LAN address from the router. Can anyone give me a quick walk through?

  • What do you mean? Do you want to remove the address from a router interface? You need to explain, and provide more information. Edit your question to include the router configuration.

1 Answer 1


To remove an address from a router interface, you use either use the no form of the command in the interface configuration:

interface <slot/port>
 no ip address <address> <mask>

or you can simply assign a different address, overwriting the existing address and mask.
