Hi. I just finished setting up a new network with one server and six workstations. I am using a Time-Warner cable modem (which also is a router) connected to a Cisco PIX 501 connected to a switch.
At this time, it is not physically connected as the cable modem is set up currently with a dynamic IP address. I paid for a static IP address, which T-W will set up when I call them.
I have used a Cisco PIX before, but it was already set up. I also managed it through command line prompts and not through a browser interface. I am pretty sure this one can be configured through a windows browser interface.
All of the people who helped set up the LAN with the cable runs, etc. have no idea how to configure the router.
I would like to configure the router so it works with the static IP address. I have the IP addresses, subnet mask, DNS numbers and gateway.
Is this something I can be talked through or do I need to hire someone who is knowledgeable in Cisco routers?
