ethernet interface

Help. I have a new 2600 router and when I plug my NIC from my PC into the fast ethernet port I can not ping the router.

I have given the router int an IP address of 192.168.100.1 and my PC an address of 192.168.100.2. I used a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 on both.

The router interface is turned on.

What do I need to do?

Thanks

Re: ethernet interface

I would first check if the interface on the router show as Up/Up. If not, you probably have a physical problem, like a bad cable.

Re: ethernet interface

You using a X-over cable? If so check the interface as Rona suggeted by using

show ip interface brief

If it's up/down there's a physical problem. Check the cable and check that the int. is not "adminstratively down"

Re: ethernet interface

did u connect your pc to the fastethernet of the router directly using a straight cable?

if yes, u should use a crossover cable not a straight cable or use a switch or a hub to connect both PC & router using straight cables

Re: ethernet interface

Check cord connected from router to PC is OK, it should be a cross-over cable, check whether the interface is shutdown or not. If yes the use "no shutdown" command on the ethernet interface. Last option is check for the speed of your NIC, it can be that your NIC is set at some other speed and router ethernet interface is set at some other speed.

Re: ethernet interface

You need to have a crossover cable in order to connect directly to the router. Try that and I bet it will work.

Re: ethernet interface

I presume that the NIC and router are not faulty....Did you use the right cable? Make sure it's a cross-cable. Cheers.
