Cisco 851 Frame Relay configuration

Hello,
Basically I just needed help to configure Frame relay on the WAN interface (FE4) on this cisco switch.

I'm pretty much clueless on how to configure frame relay on this device.

this is the information i got from the ISP

Details
=============
Circuit ID:         LXXXXX
Bandwidth:          1.5Mbps

WAN IP Address:     19x.xxx.xxx.109
WAN Subnet Mask:    255.255.255.252

Default Gateway:    19x.xxx.xxx.110
Primary DNS Server: 19x.xxx.xxx.58
Secondary DNS:      19x.xxx.xxx.3

LAN IP Addresses:   2xx.xxx.xxx.81 - 2xx.xxx.xxx.86
LAN Subnet Mask:    255.255.255.248



Local Access Details
====================
Provider:           Frame Relay
Leased Line #:      490-1087 / 490-1088
VLAN ID:            415


any help will be appreciated,

regards,
LVL 2

Sorry, but you cannot configure Frame Relay on a Cisco 851, as this is an Ethernet router.

If your ISP has installed a Frame Relay router (Probably a higher grade Cisco router) and left you with an 851 and a spare Ethernet port out of the ISP's router than this is the default configuration of an 851

Router:

(Connect to it via the Serial cable supplied, use Hyperterminal if you wish, 9600-8-N-1)

Paste this in, and:
- Replace all the [INSERT HERE] tags i've put in there with relevant data
- Fix up the XXX's in the IP's i've put in there

Let me know how you go!

I'm making some assumptions external CSU, inverse arp, etc.), but here goes:

conf t
int s1/0 (or whatever interface is connected to the frame provider)
 encapsulation frame-relay
 ip address 19x.xxx.xxx.109 255.255.255.252
 no shut
ip route 0.0.0.0 19x.xxx.xxx.110

I should add:

Paste this in after the above one:

conf t
crypto key generate rsa
ip ssh version 2
end
wr me

You'll now have SSH access to it from the web, and the config will be saved.

MysidiaConnect With a Mentor Commented:
Frame relay is a serial technology, not a protocol built on or based on Ethernet.

To connect frame relay to your equipment you need a CSU/DSU with a serial interface,  or a router with a WIC that supports frame relay.

An 851 does not have any serial interfaces,  it has only ethernet interfaces.
And you cannot install a WIC in an 851.  
It is a fixed configuration router that you cannot add interfaces to.

If your  ISP/telco has provided you with a plain old ethernet port to access your frame "circuit" ,   then the configuration is just as with a normal Ethernet
connection.

You apply the ip address to the interface, or enable DHCP client (if the ISP equipment is serving your ip using DHCP).


However, you cannot just plug an  Ethernet cable into the smart jack and have it work.
i.e.  Ethernet interface to ethernet is ok...     Ethernet to T1/frame relay is not.
