Dynamic routing is a process in which routers automatically adjust to changes in network topology or traffic. The opposite is static routing, in which the router manager enters the routes manually. Dynamic routing is used in all modern routers, but some amount of programming is still available for customizing routes if necessary. See "Routing" for more information.
