Type 9. This type is covered in RFC 1256. I include support for this type simply for grins.
Upon establishing a dialup connection, hosts implementing this option will issue Router Solicitation

Solicitation, I respond with the corresponding Router Advertisement, announcing the IP address of
the default router.
