Cisco 871w 12.4-11.T1 Can't get IP config from Road Runner

rlj
I used the template from Tech Republic labeled 851w_dhcp_config_worksheet.xls that is formally titled ?CLI template for Cisco 851w/871w standard ios.?

I figured it would be a good starting point at the very least. However my experience over the past 5 days or so has proven to be an exercise in frustration.

To begin with, I do have at least a small clue most of the time. I was (have let it lapse) a CCNP for a while. It seems now that I have forgotten too much and I am digging again.

I strongly suspect that it is much more a problem with Time Warner / Road Runner than anything else. Using the word Cisco in the same sentence that requests help from Road Runner tech support is akin to teaching a pig to sing. It really annoy's the pig.

I feel for them, they are put in the situation of supporting a network with nothing more than a script and the majority of them haven't got a clue and I'm sure they aren't paid very well. Most unfortunate. But I regress, sorry.

There was one interesting (at least to me) statement made from tech support that they showed 2 IP addresses associated with my connection. I thought that they were only supposed to give me one. I have rebooted the WebStar cable modem so many times now that the power plug is showing wear.

After fighting with this for a while I finally went back to the factory settings and tried to run the SDM to see what was different. The result was that I indeed get an IP address. Of course it also passed it to the laptop I was using to configure the router with. I figured I could beat on the NAT setup afterwords if I at least had an address and was able to get out. Unfortunately, after a few seconds, <minute the connection dropped and I was back to square one. Inside the local gateway the function is flawless all the way to the local gateway. Past that is a black hole.

I set up a statically configured ip address, net mask, gateway, dhcp server, and dns servers that I gleaned from ipconfig /all when the laptop was connected directly to the modem. Everything but pinging the host worked. It showed the interface status as up, DNS settings as successful, IP address as successful, exit interface as successful, and pinging to destination host as failed. Now remember I just said that I configured these settings as static from the ipconfig /all screen.

The reasons for failure were cited as ?The detected DNS servers or the IP address of hostname specified are unreachable or not responding.?

The recommended actions were to ?Contact your WAN administrator or ISP and check the DNS server configuration or retry with a different IP address / hostname.? & ?Contact your WAN administrator or ISP and verify encapsulation.?

I did this to no avail, the people I spoke with honestly didn't know. Very frustrating. I'll try again here in a little while.

To sum up the entire scenario, using DHCP I get an address ?sometimes? and it passes to the configuration computer. I can't ping outside the router or get to web sites or anything else after a period of time < minute. If I set it up as static, I get the above stated results but still can't get past the router. The main thing is that the router does not appear to be getting the correct configuration information during the dhcp load from road runner and that if configured statically I still can't get out. In my mind this is definitely on their end. The outside connection, fastethernet4, is all that is not working. And yes I have tried this with no firewall/accesslist configured.

As a side note I have a Netgear WGT624 that works without a glitch at all and it has a super g radio for 108 Mbts wireless. Another question is related to whether or not I could upgrade the radio in the Cisco to super g without too much trouble. That would be nice if I can ever get this blasted thing working correctly.

Below you will see the current configuration. Maybe you will spot something I didn't or maybe you can point me to a document that tells me or road runner or both how to correct this situation.

Thanks in advance for input you may provide.

Take care, rlj
