what are you trying to achieve ? Do you need your router to talk to another site ?

Basically, you need one switchport for each workstation and server. Assign an IP address from your class C range to each workstation and server. Assign an IP address from the range to the (Fast)Ethernet interface of your 2600, this usually is the first usable address, in your case. This address is also the default gateway for all your workstations and your servers.

For the remainder, you need to provide more info on what you are trying to do with your router.

Your setup seems very easy. It appears that you have no internet connection, is that the case? The following is all you should need.

hostname lab


interface fastethernet0/0

ip address

no shut


For what your asking, the config above is the only thing you need. In fact, from looking at your map, you dont even need a router. You only have one subnet and no internet connection. The router will never route anything in this scenario. Is there more to the diagram than you have posted?
