What happens when two link-state routers stop receiving hello packets from neighbors?

  • They create a default route to the adjacent router.
  • They continue to operate as normal and are able to exchange packets.
  • They consider the neighbor to be unreachable and the adjacency is broken.
  • They will flood their database tables to each other.

Explanation: Hello packets serve a keepalive function to monitor the state of an adjacent router.
