I am wondering can I connect two networks over Cisco 876 router?
I have set Vlan 1 with ip address and made command âaccess switch vlan 1â on FastEthernet 2.
I have set Vlan 2 with ip address and made command âaccess switch vlan 2â on FastEthernet 3.
On âsh runâ I can see only on port FastEthernet3 âaccess switch port vlan 2â, but not on FastEthernet2.
I have placed laptops on ports upper-mentioned, one receives IP address from DHCP that I have also configured on router and the other one I have configured with static IP.
But the problem is I can't ping laptop to laptop, can't ping laptops even from the router. But I can ping IP addresses that I have assigned to VLAN 1 and VLAN 2 from both laptops.
I don't need any firewall, neither access lists I just want two networks to talk to each other.
Do not confuse the PING request with PING response. The Windows firewall by default drops PING requests but accepts PING responses. That may be the reason why you could ping the IP address of the VLAN interface from your laptop.
In any case, I would try using Wireshark to sniff the packets on your laptops and see whether the PING packets sent from one laptop arrive at the second laptop. And possibly, I would try booting some Linux from a live CD on the laptops and try using the Linux to ping between the laptops. I just don't trust the WinXP networking when it goes to troubleshooting networks.
