RR should use DHCP so you should just be able to pull that from them. Unless you specifically ask for a static IP.

If I remember correctly, you'll also need to specify an ip route to use.

ip route (outsideinterface)

Something like that.

Do i put ip route in cli.

How would i put this in on smd interface .

Do i need to add dns server when it asks me?

do just leave the ip blank when it ask me in sdm management? Just a little frustrated.....

Oh, yeah. . .in global config, ip route dhcp (I think you can also use the interface name, but I could be wrong).

For SDM, I'm not sure as I really don't touch graphical config tools. I would think you don't need to input an IP, just put dhcp if you're using DHCP, I believe.

look at it and see what you thing. I will try what you suggested. Thanks

Nope. I blew SDM off my router and tossed the discs. I found that generally, in the amount of time it took some of my co-workers at my old job to configure a router with SDM, I already had it done via the CLI.
