Help a poor intern save his neck!

By juan363 ·
I'm in dire need of help! I'm an intern at a company and I got a cisco 1605 dropped in my lap. I have NEVER done anything in the cisco world. I'm hurting to get a configuration that can help! The situation is that we have a fixed wireless connection to one ISP. The connection is coming into a dumb bridge that conmverts the signal from RF to routable internet. The connection is then inserted into the cisco ethernet 1 slot. The fixed wireless is fast, but unreliable so we also have an ISDNline as a backup. That is inserted into the ISDN WIC card. I need to setup the router to route out the wireless unless it goes down. Then switch to ISDN. Cisco promises me it is possible, but all I can see it a "VPN" type connection to another comapny site. If someone can help me that owuld be greatly appreciated, or point me in the right direction.

Thanks,

juan

go to www.cisco.com and do a search for "1605 documentation"

there are a couple of links for installing the router.

Figure out which IOS version you have and search for documentation on that. You should be able to figure out what you need to do from there.

I have already done that none of the configurations seem to be helpful. They all partain to a frame relay and and ISDN connection to the same remote site with the same type of router on the other side.

Hi Juan,

I beleive I can help, but need a bit more info. Can you send me some info on exactly what you've gotten so far? Really, all you are trying to do basically is set up routing priorities, eg if the wireless connection is up, then it is the preferred route and the ISDN is then set up as the next preferred route.

That way, when the wireless goes down, DDR will kick in and establish an ISDN connection.

VPN is not what you are trying to achieve here, so that has probably got you a bit off track. Let me know what your set up is in full and I'll knock together a simple config for you which you can then tune up to get what you want.
