Cisco 2600 router Setup

ezzadin used Ask the Experts™

currently in my office we use a d-link router.. we are small office only 6 users... I have a cisco 2600 and I would like to replace it with the d-link...

I also have a Cable connection from my ISP (RJ45) and a 48 port unmanageable switch. The cisco comes with the built-in Eth0 and a T1 module.. I'm gonna guess that I wont benefit from the T1 module.

what I wanna do is use the Cisco 2600 to assign ip (DHCP) which is possible, I also want to do port forwarding/Application Rule which I guess that this should also work. correct?

my question is how would I use the cable connection (internet) on the Cisco? do I need to buy an Ethernet module for the Cisco and then connect eth0 to my switch and eth1 to my modem? will this even work?

yup, you'd need an ethernet module.  Eth0 would be your outside, Eth1 would be your inside.  Route the traffic upstream to cable modem.

No problem with DHCP or Port forwarding.
