Internet connection

I have setup a lan with a satellite link to my provider and its working ok when i ping and telnet both ends. The problem is i can't access the internet. Is there any more configuration i need to do on my router to access the net ?

So Ip address for both sides

My E0 Addresses which am using as the gateway

encap on both sides is DEFAULT (hdlc)

Re: Internet connection

Has your service provider advertised your address?

You can use the simple troubleshooting Techniques to find out. Try pinging and trace routing the sites that you are trying to access, this will give you a better idea.

Sometimes a return path maybe required on the Sat Modem to route the return packets.

Re: Internet connection


I think, till now you were trying to ping/traceroute ip addresses of your service provider, which you are able to do properly.

Your default route is also properly entered. To use the default route, "ip classless" should be entered in the global configuration mode. Check to see if this has been entered.

Also Try pinging from your router, an ip address in the internet, (thats for and check to see if you are able to ping that from the Router.

Re: Internet connection

Give me some information.

You are using one router with one Ethernet and one Serial, right?

Are you using the IP add provided by service provider on serial int?

Have you given default route on router?

Have you given ip classless?

And one more important thing, have you given DNS address on PCs?

I think you have not given DNS address.

Hope this will help you, waiting for feedback.
