Help a cisco newbie.
I hooked up a replacement 2801 to our network after pre-configuring it to replace a 1600. When I hooked it up several things went well:
-I could connect to the router from my local network
-I could ping the other end of one connection, and it's network and points beyond from the console
And serveral things wen't bad:
-I could NOT ping the same network from a PC that I was able to ping from the console
-The second connection showed as "UP" but not able to ping the other side of it or any networks past that point
I triple checked the following:
-The IP addresses of the interfaces connecting to each other
-The line protocol is HDLC all the way around
Any ideas what could be going wrong? I set up my replacement 2801s in a lab and connected them by creating my own RJ48 cables and everything worked great. When I try to incorporate the new router in with WAN connections (point to point) using older routers things get funny. I just put the old 1600 back until I could figure out what I am doing wrong.
