In my ccna guide I'm reading they have an example of setting up EIGRP as follows:-

"Lets look at an example of enabling EIGRP for the autonomous system 20 on a router connected to two networks". I'm properly being thick, but I don't understand the autonomous 20 part of this example.

Can anyone clear this up for me?

"An Autonomous System is a set of routers under a single administrative technical authority. EIGRP uses the concept of AS to separate routing processes".

That is, it is your collection of routers, as opposed to the routers belonging to the company next door, exchanging routing information between themselves. All your routers should be set up with the same AS number, unless you want to run two different sets of routing.
