TOPIC: networking newbie need aid in router config

networking newbie need aid in router config 13 years 3 months ago #9266

Hello all,
I am totally new to the world of networking. Just started my postgrad studies and networking is one of the subject taken. just for practice i tried to use the packet tracer 3.2 tool to set up 2 pcs each connected to their own routers and routers connected to a switch. Somehow, I cannot get pass the router config due to errors shown below. Please please help as this is all alien to me.

router(config)#interface fa0/1

Of course this depends on which interface you want to configure. Exit config mode and,

router#show ip interfaces brief

This will list your interfaces on the router. I hope this helps you.

thanks jwj....it was a big help indeed...managed to ping all devices. i have a feeling i may need all the help i can get here...know anything about configuring static routes with the use of serial cables connected to 2 routers (DTE and DCE?). Hope that you can fill me in with the basics.

This link is a very good page on static routing, this will get you started.

Hi Krazie

The thing to remember the most about the DTE and DCE connection is that which ever router has the DCE end, you need to apply a clockrate to that interface.

For example on a 2501:

router(config)#int s0
router(config-if)# Ip address subnet mask
router(config-if)# clockrate 56000
router(config-if)# no shutdown

the link provided above is a really good read as well.
