    Cisco DSL Router


    by itsupport ·

    Hi. I hope you will be able to help on this one. I am new to the whole concept of Networking as well as routing. Unfortunately I have been thrown into the deep end of the pool on this one. The problem:
    We have recently upgraded our DSL from capped to uncapped, with the result – We recieve a new (pre-setup) Cisco router. Our previous setup was a dsl router with DHCP to which all the computers were connected through a switch. The problem however is that with the new router, it cannot be done like that. I haave to set up a windows 2003 server to connect to the router and all the clients to connect to the internet via the windows 2003 server. I installed two network cards. The one is set up to connect directly to the router, whilst the other is set up to conect to the switch. I have set up the conection to the router to use the I.P., subnet and gateway (I.P. 196.211.109.x, Subnet, Gateway 196.211.109.x) as given by the service provider. I can connect to the internet without any problems. The second card I set up with a completely different I.P. address (The range we used on the previous network – I.P. 10.10.10.x, subnet, no gateway). DHCP does allocate the address range correctly with the I.P. address of the second network card (10.10.10.x) as the default gateway, but I am unable to connect to the internet or mail. Please help. Thank You.

      Have you configured Routing and Remote Access?

      You need to setup Routing and Remote Access to allow traffic to flow through from the NIC 2 to the NIC 1, there is a wizard within Routing and Remote Access group that is pretty easy to follow and setup what you exactly need.

      Kind Regards,
