very basic question

I bought a 2514 router to prepare for the CCNA and have a very basic question about the configuration.

It's about as simple as it can get.

I have two pc's connected through the two ethernet ports. PC IP addresses are and (no firewall software). Router port IPs are and

The routing table displays both nets directly connected.

When I try to ping from PC to PC it fails.

From the 128 net PC I can ping to the router 169 interface, but no further.

From the 169 PC I can't ping beyond the router 169 interface.

Am I missing something, or does this sound more like a hardware problem? (it's a cheap used router)

Make sure the PC on subnet has a default gateway configured. It should point to

Re: very basic question

Ensure IP ROUTING is enabled. the default is disabled. then it should work.

If you don't want IP ROUNTING, you may want to use static ROUTING
