CCNA Lab, Setup TFTP Server!

Last week I attended the Cisco ICND course here in London. For my Lab at home I need to upgrade my 2600 router to "IP Plus Feature Pack 12.(7)XKl" I have the software disk. I'm running Win2K. I installed the TFTP server App and have it running. But I can't ping the Router from the PC or the PC from the Router over Ethernet. I've tried both cross-over and Straight-through.

Router IP address is e 0/0

ip address 192.168.1.0 255.255.0.0

PC

IP address 192.168.1.2 255.255.0.0

If I do an IPCONFIG the output is this:

IP address..... 213.123.248.54

Subnet Mask.... 255.255.255.255

Default Gateway 213.123.248.54

These are my DSL details.

I tried putting those in and still couldn't ping from the router.

I can console to the Router OK

I just need to upgrade the IOS! Does anyone have any suggestions.

Re: CCNA Lab, Setup TFTP Server!

Seems as if your PC is not configured well because it should show an IP in the same subnet as the router.

Re: CCNA Lab, Setup TFTP Server!

Its seems the PC is set up wrong. In "Network & Dial-up connections" there are 2 icons.

1. for my BT DSL 213.123.248.54 255.255.255.255

(This is a static IP address assigned by my provider)

2. the other icon for Local Area Network which has an X through it. (This PC was previously connected to another PC)

So one is for my Dial up and one is so I can set up a small network.

How can I use the internet and have a config for CCNA Lab. It must be something simple!

Any ideas?

Re: CCNA Lab, Setup TFTP Server!

255.255.255.255 is MOT a subnet address but rather a broadcast address.

but that could be due to some whacked out DSL proprietory deal

What you can do is just go into the advanced tab in network properties and add 192.168.1.3 to the NIC

BUT your router IP is wrong that's the network address You need to make the router 192.168.1.1

All else fails just trash the dsl setting and disconnect the dSL.

Then add the correct address's and you should be OK

Oz

Router IP address is e 0/0

ip address 192.168.1.0 255.255.0.0 <-- WRONG

PC

IP address 192.168.1.2 255.255.0.0

Re: CCNA Lab, Setup TFTP Server!

The other icon has an "X" through it? Do you have the other card connected to anything (hub/switch)? I have a similar setup with my 2000 machine. 2 NIC's, one for the cable modem, 2nd for the internal network connected via a hub. The IP address for the internet is via DHCP, and the internal is a static range.

Re: CCNA Lab, Setup TFTP Server!

The whole thing is down now. I have a Rommon sign. No idea. I just want to install the ios. Can't believe its this tough.

So I can't actually get the PC to talk to the router over ethernet, just through the console.

I have a cross-over from networkcard on the PC to the Ethernet port on the router.

On the PC the red cross won't go away unless I plug the previously peer-to-peered PC back.

What I need to do is tell it to stop looking for the other PC and to look for the router.

My experience with PC's and the Win2k system is not very good.

Maybe I should re-install win2K but this seems a bit drastic.

Any ideas?

The config on the router is lost so I just want to connect to it as if it where a disaster/recovery situation at put a new ios on it.

Also the disk has these files on them called D:\Images\12.0\aaa1316

D:\Images\12.0\aaa1317

D:\Images\12.0\aaa1318

D:\Images\12.0\aaa1319

D:\Images\12.0\aaa1320

Is this the image? Do they need to be put together?

Please any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Re: CCNA Lab, Setup TFTP Server!

Jason..

I agree with the other folks that setting up the router with an IP and connecting your computer to it is the easiest. Might want to check your cables also. But...

in the meantime here is an alternative I use a lot when I cannot put a router up on the network or don't want to setup ip address...

now that you are in rommon you are half way there..

using XMODEM over the console port

rommon1>confreg 0x3920

turn router off

reset hyperterminal setting to speed 115200

Goto call and disconnect

goto call and connect

turn router on

rommon1>xmodem -c

Do not start upload program yet..

File size checksume file name

2537948 bytes (0x2b9dc) 3640-i-l

WARN: This operation will ERASE bootflash. If the xmodem download to bootflash fails, you will lose any good image

you may already have in bootflash.

invoke this application only for diaster recovery.

Do you wish to continue? yes

ready to receive file prog..

Goto transfer and send file

Select xmodem protocol

Click brouse and find the image

Highlight it and click open

Click send

File starts to copy

Erasing flash at 0x3000000

Program flash location 0x3000000

Transfer complete!

Router will reload with new image...

Once at router prompt go into enable mode

Go into config mode

Go into console port configuration

Set speed to 9600

You will loose connection at this time

Reset hyperterminal setting to speed 9600

Goto call and disconnect

goto call and connect

end

set config register to 0x2102

exit config

Do sh ver and make sure config register is set to 0x2102

reload router

FYI the image should look like c2600-i-mz.122-3.bin from Cisco. Just an example.

Hope this help.

Re: CCNA Lab, Setup TFTP Server!

Great that worked. Thanks very much. I used the XMODEM method to upgrade to version 12.

I still have a problem though.

I can't do the exercises in the CCNA because i can't ping between the router and the PC.

Re: CCNA Lab, Setup TFTP Server!

When you patch into the router from your PC do you get a link light?

Do a "show int E0/0". What does it say?

Do a "show run". Is the interface in a shut or no shut state?

How can the PC have an IP of 192.168.1.2 255.255.0.0 if when you do an IPCONFIG the output is this:

IP address..... 213.123.248.54

Subnet Mask.... 255.255.255.255

Default Gateway 213.123.248

Did you reboot after changing the IP address?

What OS are you running?

What does DSL have to do with it?

Re: CCNA Lab, Setup TFTP Server!

No I don't get a link light.

So I have swopped out the NIC and its all working fine. Something so simple ah. It worked fine a week before so didn't think it could be that.

Thanks for you help.

Re: CCNA Lab, Setup TFTP Server!

I think you need cross-over cable from router to your pc.

Bronze

Re: CCNA Lab, Setup TFTP Server!

Have you issued a no shutdown on the router i/f you are connecting to the PC through?
