seems good,
but you need to add the following:

ip nat inside source list 10 interface fastethernet0/0 overload

Hi Adabara2009: Please provide a complete copy of your latest running-config with passwords blanked out.

In your DHCP pool of "baze" the default-router is incorrect. Change it to 172.xx.xx.1as your clients need default to point to the router's LAN interface not something out over the WAN. There's not much point censoring 172.16-32 addresses btw since they are private and not world routable :)

Also what pings or other troubleshooting have you done? Please provide this output too for us.

Hello Adabara2009, it is a bit difficult for us to keep track of a list of commands with all your changes there. It would make it much easier if you just paste the latest output from "show running-configuration". With this we'll have something reliable to work from.

It is like no one has suggestion to my challenges. May be Cisco product not supported in EE?

For one thing, we're not paid to provide support advice here. We do it voluntarily in the hope we may be able to help others out who are having trouble.

Secondly, you're not providing the information people are asking for, which makes it difficult to help you without remote access and a good understanding of your environment.

Help us help you, and have some patience and I'm sure your query will be resolved.
