I have just purchased a Cisco 1811-W, and plan to use it as a wireless lan gateway.
I have had some experience in the command line config of a number of PIXs, but am in no way an expert.
To configure this device i was planning on using the SDM web interface of the 1811. I connect a laptop to the router, let it assign an IP and go into the SDM web config stages.
I go through all of the steps on the initial setup, i get to the Cisco SDM Express Summary, the only part left is to hit "finish" and have the config uploaded to the router. When i hit finish i get an hour glass and the finish button is grayed out but nothign happens after that.
I have looked up someone elses guide on the internet (http://www.inacom-sby.com/SDM.ppt
) slide number 16 shows the menu i am at. The text box on sceen in the guide shows a box saying "The configuration is being delivered to the router"... "Click Ok to shut down Cisco SDM Express". This box does not pop up for me.
I do get the box below heading "Cisco SDM Express - Reconnect instructions"
I have tried multiple laptops, i have tried not changing the lan IP address so i should not be disconnected from the router, Even when i do change the LAN ip address in the config, when i come to hit finish i get the hour glass and can still ping the router on its default address (10.10.10.1) not the address that i have tried to change it to (eg 192.168.3.7).
Any help would be much appreciated. Or if anyone would like to suggest an alternate configuartion method im all ears.
