Restore a backup config to a wiped Cisco 831 router
Posted on 2011-03-08
I have a backup config of a Cisco 831 router that I’m trying to restore on a different 831 router. I followed Cisco’s directions on resetting the router to factory defaults, which worked fine.
I went through the “new setup wizard”, after the router reset, and configured an IP of 192.168.16.1 to FastEthernet01 on the router. I then statically assigned my laptop 192.168.16.100, plugged it into FastEthernet01 and can’t ping 192.168.16.1 nor telnet to it. (I am doing all this via the console which is plugged into my production laptop).
I need to be able to tftp the backup config from the 192.168.16.100 laptop to the newly wiped router. What am I doing wrong?
