This should be a pretty straight forward question but I am having trouble with configuring the router as I have no prior knowledge with Cisco IOS.
I purchased the 851W to practice for the CCNA which I eventually plan to prepare for but am currently pursuing other certs at the moment. With that said, I have a "Production" network which the house uses and a Lab network which is where my Cisco router fits in the equation. For what it's worth, I can not (do not) want to change anything with the way things are currently set up. They are using a LinkSys (WRT54G).
I've included a JPEG of what a workable solution is however, I do not know how to configure the Cisco IOS with these settings. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Pretty much, the Lab network would run on a different subnet as the rest of the home network. Questions I have are would the Cisco router use my Linksys Router as the Default Gateway or the ISP's Internet Default Gateway.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, I have access to all administrative tools for both devices, it's figuring out what to put in them that is the hard part!
Nate, you are very welcome..I am also very glad I was a help and that you are preparing for your CCNA which Im sure you will do very well, study alot as well as do practice labs, I would also recommend to participate in these forums either by reading threads helping others or asking questions as this is the only way to achive full understanding of
"Do you know if the 851w is halting Discover Broadcast on that subnet?"
If you have a Windows DHCP server and want to use it to handle IP addresses to various subnets within your LAB environment you would need to configure IP helper-address under each of the interfaces of each of the subnets thus dhcp/BootP arp broadcast are fordwarded to dhcp server IP.. and yes! you router IOS is 1542 complient.
ip address 192.168.2.1 255.255.255.0
ip helper-address 192.168.2.201
