On the router, use 'route show'.

When I try to run the 'route' command on the routers in a multiple LAN 
topology, it shows nothing. Yet, the the hosts on different machines can 
connect to each other. How is this possible without the routers having any 
entries about other networks?

If I use netstat -rn I get the following output:

Kernel IP routing table
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags   MSS Window  irtt Iface
132.206.54.0    0.0.0.0         255.255.255.0   U         0 0          0 eth0
0.0.0.0         132.206.54.253  0.0.0.0         UG        0 0          0 eth0

where obviously 132.206.54.0 is not any network in the topology
