    Hi,
    I have come by a Cisco 877W ADSL router. What I would like to know is, how do I gain access to the configuration interface.

    Many Thanks
    Dave.

    Console cable is your best bet mate....

    Isn't it possible to manage 877W via Web Interface?

    Try Cisco SDM.

    Only worked on PIX firewalls and I generally start with the console cable and configure from there, allowing web managment from secure IP addresses etc.

    The OP probably has no info on the Cisco box (even what the IP address is) so if possible using a console cable and getting a running config could help out.

    Oh yeah definately. As you said console cable is still his best bet. I was just mentioning other option. 8)

    Yep... unless it's been previously configured with an IP address, your only option is to manage it using a console cable.

    Hi,
    I was told that it has been working before i got it. If this is correct, how would i go about accessing it, without a serial cable.

    You have two options:

    1. Get a USB to Serial Convertor then run a VM of XP and then run Putty on the VM to connect to the serial port.

    2. Plug your laptop into the Cisco 877 via an ethernet cable and then if it's giving out DHCP it will be your default gateway. If it isn't giving out DHCP then you can do one of two things

    - Speak to the previous owner of the Cisco 877 and find out the network settings and connect to it via http://IP Address or https://IP Address.

    - Use something like Look@LAN to do an IP Scan which will pick up the IP Address of the Cisco 877 and then access it via http://IP Address or https://IP Address.


    Something to add that when I configure Cisco 877 I turn of http server and https server in the IOS, so there is no guarantee this functionality is open. Your best bet is get balls deep with the IOS.

    Hi,
    Well, i have connected the 877W to my network, and run the Fing software, but it does not show up in the network. On to the next step.

    Your PC and your 877W have to be on the same subnet to communicate. If you don't know how to do that, configuring an 877W would be waaaay out of your league, unfortunately.

    Hi,
    So, i now have access to the 877W router, which has started up the Cisco SDM Express config wizard. I went through the wizard up to completing the DHCP server config screen. When I press NEXT nothing happens.
    Can anyone please advise why this could be?

    Thanks
    Dave

    SDM is bad enough never mind SDME :biggrin insert your cisco cd and install SDM, if you’re not going to bother with the cli(although if you’re planning on going down the Cisco Cert route, then you best get your hands dirty with the cli now)
