cisco 2651XM router
the above router is my current gateway to the internet for a small lan of PC's. The lan is on 172.16.1.xx and it connects to f0/0 which is set at 172.16.1.30. The internet is via an adsl wic card which is Dialer0.
I originally used sdm to do the route which set it dynamically as:
ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 Dialer0 and the internet works with this.
I've tried to alter it to a static route but when I do the internet goes off.
ip route 172.16.0.0 255.255.0.0 Dialer0 doesn't work
ip route 172.16.0.0 255.255.255.255 Dialer0 doesn't work.
I don't understand why setting a static route makes the internet go down when this looks like the correct route.
Thanks for any pointers.
