RIP on WAN side.

Hello,
My first post. I have a cheapy TP Link Modem http://www.tp-link.com/uk/products/productDetails.asp?class=adsl&pmodel=TD-W8951ND which has options for RIP on both the LAN and WAN sides. I've not got another router on the Lan side and I assume that you would not use RIP with a customers router. Would that be correct? The modem works fine and I get speeds within the estimate given (6.5 mbit d/l at best, 440is kbit u/l) It modulates g.dmt, I would have expected ADSL2+. Ross-on-Wye is a 21CN exchange and I am 0.5 km from it. I have a good filter (not the one that came with the modem) and the ring wire is disconnected.
Regards
Adam

You do not need to use RIP as the ISP assigns your router a default gateway, all your router does is pass all traffic to that default gateway.
