How to setup new Cisco 881 Router...

Hi,

Can someone please in a nut shell tell me how I can setup this new router?

I purchased a used Cisco 881 router off ebay.. I need to reset the config and enter my network settings..  This is the settings I want on the router.  I just want to be able to get online for now...

The router has 4 Lan ports, I want to use the internal switch..

Router: 10.10.10.253
LAN: 10.10.10.0/24

Internet:  Fe4 - Use DHCP from my ISP.

It needs to give out DHCP Range: 10.10.10.11 to 10.10.10.49
DNS Server: 10.10.10.200

thanks!

First you need a console cable usually there is one in the box with the router. If you have not than purchase one from ebay or a local shop you need a "cisco console cable" like this:

After that you need to perform a password recovery.

After that you can make some configuration

what you ask there can be done using the following commands:

enable
configure terminal
interface vlan 1
ip address 10.10.10.253 255.255.255.0
ip dhcp excluded-address 10.10.10.1  10.10.10.10
ip dhcp excluded-address 10.10.10.50  10.10.10.255
ip dhcp pool LOCAL
 network 10.10.10.0 /24
dns server 10.10.10.200
default-router 10.10.10.253
^Z
copy running-config startup-config


and you have configured the router
