A distributed algorithm to reconfigure a double-loop token-ring local area network following topological changes is presented. Each node, upon detection of a broken link, attempts to use another link, and when this is not possible it connects its input and output lines to form a loopback. The nodes communicate only with their neighbors and base their actions on the messages they receive and on
