Mike D'Arcy stands accused of saying:

RIP is not neccessary here; default is your friend.  There aren't all that
many applications where judicious use of static routes can't cover all
your routing needs.  (The netmasked route is a godsend for small networks)

> Adapter xxx.yyy.180.54's default gateway is a router at 
> xxx.yyy.180.1 

On the .18.* net, the default route should be .18.1, the gateway
should be known to the campus net as the route for the .18.* net.
(You can use RIP for this if you're desperate)
