unable to access my router

I am configuring my router through telnet for a long time. today when i

started telnet it was not working.

then i start checking gradually and when i ping my ethernet interface

it was unable to even ping that interface and i make ensure the following things.

1- Switch off / No firewall on my PC

2- both ips router interface and PC are from same network

3- telnet is enabled

4- even for troubleshooting purpose,i took different network ips

for pc and router interface

Please can any one help me that how i can findout wthat is the actual

fault and how can i check my ethernet interface.

Note: i can access my router through console cable

Re: unable to access my router

Thers is not need to take different network IP.

Check by this:

1) Connect console cable, Do telnet locally from router to same router's interface IP address. - What is response?

2) Check from another workstation that is available in same network.

3) check your workstation default gatway.

check your workstations routing table by MS-DOS command " netstat -rn "

4) See routers ARP, is it resolves your workstations IP address.

5) Is there any access-list present for telnet on router,

6) Are you able to ping your work station from your router?

7)Are you using Vista Operating system? - Then you have to start your telnet service from control panel " turn on / Off feature ".

Re: unable to access my router

Hey,

when you are consoled into the router can you ping the router ethernet interface?

If you carry out the command 'show int' does the info show the interface in an up/up state up/down or down/down

i.e.

Ethernet 0 is up, line protocol is up

What kind of router are you using?

Is there a switch between the PC and thr router - or is the PC connected directly to an ethernet port on the switch?

For example, if you have a 1841 router with a FastEthernet and you are directly connected to the router from your PC - you will need a crossover patch lead or a swicth between the PC and the router.
