RIP stands for "Routing Information Protocol". Basically it's a router protocol that is used to discover and maintain the best route to a specific address or destination. The nodes it creates can avoid network loops and lower the maximum amount of hoops to a specific address. I don't see a problem with you enabling it on your router. If you have the choice enable RIP2 since it has subnet mask support.

RIP is Routing Information Protocol, it's basically a way for one router to keep other routers aware as routing or network topology changes. If you have one router, leave it disabled.
