    Hey guys,

    I am a total newbie to cisco stuff and i do not know if i am posting in the right place but here i go.

    I have a brand new 1701 router and i dont know anything about configuring it. To make thing simple i want to activate the local lan port and enable it to configure in browser mode instead of command line. How can i do this on this model???
    Please help me. :rolleyes:

    i dont much either.. but connect the router to an ethernet port to a pc or laptop and open a brower (then look through the documentation for the router's ip address) or try 192.168.1.1 it should open the configuration..

    Yes the cables came with the unit. I can use hyper terminal to access router in command line but i have no idea what to do there, that is why i want to use it in the browser.
    I think the lan by default is disabled???? is that true?? i don't get a connection status if i try to use the lan, so i think i have to enable it first??
    How do i do all this? :ohmy

    Ahh, this is going to take me back.......

    You can connect via hyperterminal yes?

    You then need to type in:

    enable (and enter the password if necessary)
    This takes you into priveleged mode from where you need to type in:

    ConfT
    This takes you into the configuration mode

    Next step is to configure the interface, do this by typing:

    int fa 0/0 (where the first ethernet port is 0)

    From within the interface's configuration you can set specific things such as the interfaces IP address, and whether the interface is enabled.

    So, to set the IP Address you need to type:

    IP Address x.x.x.x x.x.x.x (Address and Subnet Mask)

    You will also need to make sure that the interface is up by typing:

    No Shutdown.

    Once you have given the interface an IP Address and enabled the port you should be able to access it from a web browser.

    (Note though: Some of this could be wrong as I'm recalling it from memory and it has been a while since I looked at things like this - Guys please correct me if I'm wrong, for my own knowledge as well as others)

    How are you connected to the router? You will need to have an ethernet cable from fa 0 to a switch of sometype into which your PC is connected. 8)

    does your pc have an ip address in the same range as the one you configured on your router?

    Can you go to a command prompt and type:

    IPconfig /all

    Then into a web browser type in the address that it lists as the default gateway.

    What happens?

    did you buy it new, or has it been used before? if it is configured by a previous owner, then the web interface may be disabled. grasping at straws here.

    Ok guys this is a brand new unit.
    DHCP is not enable by the look of it so i managed to some how change the ip to 192.168.1.254 which i can ping and telnet to no problem. I have given myself an ip in that range BTW.
    When i try and go in http://192.168.1.254 in the browser ends up in dns error which i think is caused because i have not enable the web interface???

    without wanting to state the obvious, but if it's a brand new device, you should have received documentation about how to install and configure it. have these docs been no help to you?

    Well the doc's are more focus on how to install rather than how to configure. I search on the cisco web page and found alot of doc's but i don't think there is a doc on how to enable the web interface...
    All i want to is enable the web interface so i can configure in there to connect to a pppoe dsl connection and i will learn the commands slowly after that. :cry:

    The ip address of the cisco 1701 is : 10.10.10.1
    subnet is 255.255.255.248

    to enable web configuring (SDM express) you need to do the following

    connect via com cable (blue flat cable) and hyperterminal

    9600 baud, 8 bits, no parity, 1stop bit, no flowcontrol
    type in the following:

    en (enter)
    conf t (enter)
    ip http server (enter)
    ip http secure-server (enter)
    ip http authentication (enter)


    This is out of the SDM quick start guide, last page.

    then goto IE and type in http://10.10.10.1 (enter)

    (your pc ip needs to be, say 10.10.10.3....

    you should be able to acccess via IE


    Best of luck.


    Can do this bit myself, the rest i am stuck on...
