So I Bought A Cisco Router....

IMG_5885.thumb.JPG.abcbca01bfa807aa8c1284dd2bda43c5.JPG

Stupid question for sure but I bought a Cisco 2600 router and I think the "FastEthernet" would be considered the WAN port but I'm not 100% what the LAN being my switch would plug into... Pretty sure it's not "console" as I believe you configure the device through PuTTY but other than that I don't have much of a clue on the ports. PLZ HELP!!

FastEthernet 0/0 should be the link to your Lan, if you notice the port to the left where it says ISDN that would be where your (If you had one) ISDN internet connection would go into.  You are going to need another card to get another fast ethernet port then you can start configuring the device through SSH or Telnet.

You can also get a usb to serial adapter and then a serial to rj45 cable and plug into the console port on the front there to configure it as well.

Generally on Cisco switches and routers any Ethernet port can be a wan port. you just need to configure the router through the cli.

 

You'll need a Ethernet to erial adapter to connect

As mentioned, you only have a single Ethernet port on that model, lucky you didn't get the standard Ethernet 10mbps model which I think is the 2610!

 

That isdn module you can unscrew and also wack in another module but be careful because you should look at the compatible modules. You'll most probably be able to buy something like a 4ESW module which is 4 switch ports so you can connect to the lan part of your network.

 

The serial module will be useful if you ever study the ccent/ccna/ccnp material since they still cover technologies that use serial like ppp and hdlc.

 

You can do some really wacky stuff with only a single interface since if you have a switch capable of VLAN tagging then you can logically create 2 interfaces on fa0/0 and have 1 as a WAN interface  if you manage to get the ISP modem/router on the same vlan on a switch and the other interface as your LAN gateway. I wouldn't recommend running this solution but it's cool to learn about!

 

Although the switch modules are fairly cheap in the UK, not sure about where you are located.

I'm going to put a link to my PC specs which actually aren't my PC specs and I cry myself to sleep everyday so I can have these PC specs but I can't afford these PC specs so PC specs PC specs PC specs PC specs PC specs PC specs.
