We have just had installed by our ISP a leased line router - Cisco 1601R.
Before I attempt (again - the first time failed) to set it up on our NT
network,I have conected it one win2k prof PC to make sure I can access the
internet from it.
The routers mask is 255.255.255.248
Its broadcast address is 220.127.116.11
The router address is 18.104.22.168
The routers LAN address 22.214.171.124
we also have 194-198 as useable addressed
Therefore I plugged the router directly into the PC wth a cross-over cable
with the following settings
NIC - 126.96.36.199
DG - None
I enabled IP forwarding in the Registry.
I expected to be able to access the internet by using LAN settings - auto
detect. But I can't browse or even ping another internet IP address.
I can ping 188.8.131.52 and 199 OK but not the others, although they can
be pinged from the outside world.
Unfortunatly the ISP is only interested in their side of the router and
can't offer any support to LAN side.
Any help appreciated
pls try giving the LAN address of the Router as the default gayeway. It should work. Also give an appropriate DNS entry to yr PC.
The DG idea makes sense, but how do I know the dns stuff the ISP hasn't given us any of that.
Do you ourusername.ispname.com type thing ?
I'll phone this week.
As an aside, if you or anyone knows how to get this thing working properley, are you available on the phone - (we're paying of course) to get this working?
Based on time differences it suits us 'cause we down the server at night.
We are quite used to setting up ASDL and cable routers as they go on the same subnet, mask etc. but this is our first leased line and cisco router.
Normally we can make changes to the router ourselves but not this time.
You can use any DNS server as long as there's no firewall in fromt of it for testing.
I understand that the ISP can get to the router, but is the router set up correctly in terms of routes, etc. Do you have access to the 1600? Can you log in or does the ISP control the router exclusevly.
I can help you on the phone for free if you want.
We don't have any access to the router the ISP controls it exclusively, I am more used to ADSL and cable where I have access to the router, so this is a new one one me. It has been suggested that the default getway might the problem and I have been sent an example set up. I am going to try this tommorrow (uk times). If I'm really stuck then the phone help would be much appreciated.

Thanks for the reply, just to let you know I am doing the setup now.
- Back to basics, if I attach a cross-over cable to the router from second(WAN) NIC, should I be able to ping it, because I get timed out error, but there is a little flash of the LAN activity button. I have set the WAN NIC to 184.108.40.206 and s/n 255.255.255.248 and G/W 220.127.116.11.
One thing is , the ISP agve us 3 IP address for the router, and I'm not sure what I should use.
18.104.22.168 LAN address
22.214.171.124 Router Address
126.96.36.199 Broadcast Address
Can you ping anything out on the Internet (not by name, but by ip)?
How do you have your PC conencted with the router to perform this test?
An update for anyone looking who can advise.
I can now ping the internet from the NIC conected to the router - 188.8.131.52
I can also ping 184.108.40.206 and 199 from the server but not 192 so the router address must be 193
I cannot ping the server's router NIC from any workstation or the router or the internet.
IP forwarding is enable on both server NIC's
A little nearer,
I can ping the server second NIC on 220.127.116.11
from win 2000 prof machines.
On win 98pc's, although I put 192.168.0.1 as the gateway, when I do winipcfg it says it 18.104.22.168 but that can't even be pinged from the server.
What should the Router setting (003) in the DHCP server scope on the NT server be ?
