If you can't have a DHCP address, you will not be able to reach the Internet so this is the first issue to fix.

You can run deb ip dhcp server events and deb ip dhcp server packets to see what's going on.

Then you need to translate your traffic so all your traffic will use your true public WAN IP address as the source address:

ip nat inside source list 101 interface Ethernet0/1 overload


access-list 101 permit ip any


also access-list 1 is useless in your config

I'm glad to read that !!!

Applying an ACL on an interface which permit anything is like not applying the ACL at all.

ACL 101 filters which packets should be natted and as a best practice I prefer specifying the source subnet.

You can notice ACL 101 is not apply to any interface but to the NAT rule statement.

Don't hesitate to rate my post if it was helpful ;-)
