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.  

Many thanks,
Richard

Try this:

conf t
ip routing

Can each PC ping its gateway?

If still not working, can you post a "show run" from the rotuer?

Each PC can ping it's Gateway and other sides gateway, ie Laptop 1 can ping both 10.156.1.9 and 192.168.1.1, but not the other laptop.

Just a note, there are no other hardware or software firewalls active between the laptops.

The conf t and ip routing didn't help.

Yep, that worked.  Could you quickly explain why it worked though, thanks.

Yeah, you have the Zone Based Firewall enabled on the WAN interface with no policy defined which means it will block all traffic to and from that interface.  Once you have a policy defined, you can enable the Firewall if desired.
