Cisco 1805 hwic-cable-modem-d-2 basic configuration for residential cable
Posted on 2009-07-09
I got my hands on a Cisco 1805 integrated services router with hwic-cable-modem-d-2 that I want to use at my house.
I have some experience with Pix firewalls and basic switch configuration for both IOS and CatOS, so I figured I should be able to get this 1805 up and running but I'm beyond lost when it comes to the configuration on this guy.
I called Comcast and got them to plugin the mac address for the cable-modem, it's pulling down an IP address and I'm able to ping some external stuff from the router console. I tried configuring one of the fast ethernet interfaces, adding a route and plugging a laptop into FE0/0 but it doesn't appear to be routing.
I've looked at various configuration examples and, like I said...I'm lost. What's even more confusing is that the cable modem seems to have two seperate mac addresses and I'm not sure how this factors into the config. If anyone can point me in the right direction to get this thing working, I'd appreciate it.
