Hi,

ive configured 3 routers which are all pingable across the whole of the network, but the config ive attached and sh ip route at bottom simulates a connection to my ISP1.

when I do a "sh ip route" on any of the routers as ive checked, it shows "C       10.0.0.4/30 is directly connected, Loopback5", WHY?  as Ive configured the Loopback5 as "10.0.0.6"?

Easy one.

Network of 10.0.0.4/30 covers the following IP Addresses:

10.0.0.4 (Network Address)
10.0.0.5 (First Usable IP)
10.0.0.6 (Second Usable IP)
10.0.0.7 (Broadcast Address)

The "sh ip route" command is showing you where each NETWORK it knows about is, and 10.0.0.6 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.252 (/30) belongs to the 10.0.0.4/30 network.
