Simple routing using a Cisco 871
Posted on 2009-05-13
I have just got a Cisco 871 which I am configuring through "Cisco Configuration Professional" and IOS commands where needed, both of which I am familiar enough with the use of.
I am trying to set up a simple route configuration between two laptops with the router in-between, however I cannot get the router to route! Using ping, no response.
Here's the set up:
Laptop 1 - IP: 10.156.1.99 Subnet Mask: 255.255.0.0 Default Gateway: 10.156.1.9
Router WAN interface - IP: 10.156.1.9 Subnet Mask: 255.255.0.0
Router VLAN Interface (Switched Port 3) - IP: 192.168.1.1 Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Laptop 2 - IP: 192.168.1.2 Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0 Default Gateway: 192.168.1.1
All other settings are factory default. I've tried setting up various static routes but they don't seem to help. As I said, I'm new to Cisco, any help would be appreciated.
