The method for selecting a hash function includes: hashing data to be hashed by using a current alternative hash function; decoding a hash result; accumulating decoded results until no carry occurs during the accumulation; and selecting a current alternative hash function with no carry generated as a formal hash function. The method for storing a routing table includes: dividing the routing table into a next-level node pointer portion and a prefix portion for being stored; and selecting a hash function by using the above method for selecting a hash function. The method for searching a routing table includes: directly searching an IP address to be searched according to a directly stored length of a next-level node pointer portion for storing the routing table; and reading a prefix node according to a searched result. Thus, hash collision can be avoided, and memory resources occupied by the routing table can be effectively reduced." The patent application was filed on July 29, 2009 (12/511,558).
