I recently configured a 2821 router via the SDM GUI. Then, I installed a HWIC-D-9ESW module into the router - the installation seems to have gone OK and the router can detect the module and its interfaces are "UP."
Now, what is the next step to configure the HWIC module? At this point, all I want to do is connect some devices to the LAN interfaces on the module for connectivity, but apparently it isn't that easily.
Devices connected to the module have connectivity to each other, but not to the onboard WAN ports. And this is my main issue - how is this resolved? How do I configure the 2821 and the HWIC-D-9ESW so that devices connected to it establish connectivity to the onboard interfaces, and thus, to the internet (via one of the statically configured onboard interfaces).
For the life of me, I cannot find any documents that spells this out.
I have been in the IT field for 10 years, but new to Cisco devices, so I am a mixture of experienced with newbness when it comes to these particular routing devices.
Any help would be appreciated!
