Help setting up Cisco 2611 as my home router.

I wanted to see if someone had a quick config for using this router at home.  I want to have Int E 0/0 connected to Cox Bridge that assigns addresses via DHCP.  Then have E 0/1 connected to a 1900 switch.  I want to run a DHCP server on the router and assign IP's out of E 0/1.

Later on I would like to setup 5 VLAN's and truck them with 5 1900 series switches using the router for intervlan communication.  That can come later for now I just want to make the router work with the default VLAN.

And don't post it to the code snipet. Just paste into the body.

I'm sorry I was side tracked when I posted that.  Posting the config was pointess its new out of box.  when you power it on you get.

Go through the initial setup and answer the basic questions. What is your level of experience with Cisco.
0
 
StevexpressAuthor Commented:
Pretty low.  I understand theory and some basic commands.  I have my 1900 switches setup and trucking so maybe that helps describe my experience level.

Once I have gone through the initial setup will the router write my config changes to memory so when I power cycle it doesnt lose the configuration?

StevexpressAuthor Commented:
Also, how to I configure E 0/0 to accept an address VIA DHCP.... do I just bring the interface up with no ip information entered?
0
 
redcelltechCommented:
Issue this command an E 0/0 "ip addr dhcp" This should take care of the WAN interface.

As for the LAN, check these out.
ip dhcp pool {add descriptive name}
host 192.168.0.250 255.255.255.0

!
ip dhcp pool 1
network {you network address here}
default-router {your default router here}
dns-server {your dns servers here}

Thanks,

Ok thanks I am going to give it a try.  I will post up in a little while hopefully using the cisco.

its going to have a public IP so if you wanted to login to it at some point you could.

Do a "show version" and look at the bottom of the output (you may have to hit space to get to the bottom) and verify that the config-register is set to "0x2102". If it's not, you'll need to change it.



config t
config-reg 0x2102
end

hahah I should have known that one>  I had to do the same thing o my 2500 cisco.  

thanks for the fast response.  Going to power cylce the router again.

wri mem is the quick way to handle it once you have moved the config register
0
 
Don JohnstonInstructorCommented:
The config register is set directly from global config. There is no need to update NVRAM.

I was referring to a quick was to handle copy running-config startup-config.

Don JohnstonInstructorCommented:
Cisco has been threatening to remove the "write memory" command from the IOS command set for quite some time. One day they're going to make good on that promise. For people just starting with the IOS, I recommend using "copy run start" so you won't have to unlearn a useless command.

I have my PC connected to the 1900 switch and the router from there.  With a run of the mill dlink I can get about 23000Kbps out of my connection.  With the new setup I am seeing about 6000  is this a limit of the router or the switch.  I know I am only connected to a 10Mbit Ethernet but I would assume it could get close to the link speed of 10Mbit not 6Mbit.  MTU size is 1500.

Don JohnstonInstructorCommented:
The 1900XL's aren't know for their performance.

That said, are you sure about 23,000kbps? That works out to 23mbps.
0
 
StevexpressAuthor Commented:
100% sure.   I couldn't believe it either its COX high speed with there boost   last at night I have hit 29Mbit.  I think I pay for 15Mbit and with the booster it goes higher.   Cox high speed in Oklahoma City I believe its the fastest home internet you can get in the $50-100 range.

Don JohnstonInstructorCommented:
You might want to make sure the 1900xl port is set to full duplex.
