    Setting back the config reg value to its factory default as mentioned above, should solve the problem with the config. It is still configured to bypass nvram and load the ROM based image.

    Your show version output in your PM shows the version of the ROM based image. What is your IOS version after setting the config-register back to 0x2102 and reloading? (second line of show version output, not bootstrap)

    Well, that's one of the things you won't learn from a simulator And now you'll never forget.

    So it is safe to assume, i would use a normal patch to run to my WAN port of my switch?

    You need an straight-forward to connect the router (ie. eth1) to the switch. [edit: note removed]

    What about the importance of cooling? I obviously dont have a rack and the fan on my router is on the bottom. if i set it on a table am i gonna sufficate it?

    I cant seem to get a link on the 100mb/b port on my 1924 switch, ive tried both cables and i even looked over the troubleshooting page on cisco's site.

    I was finally able to telnet into my router. Now that i can do that i guess i can pull the console cable. Well once lab is all set up.. both routers/switch.

    I just changed my port to half duplex on my switch, now the transciever is going nuts, but nada on the LED of the port on the switch.

    You could put a couple of whatevers under it to create some space, but if you only use it for a couple of hours in a row there's no reason to worry about cooling. I have mine on a small 'table' in a closet, although I never use them for more than 8 hours in a row:
    www.techexams.net/images/labphoto.jpg

    If you want them running 24 hours per day, about an inch space below it will do.

    I cant seem to get a link on the 100mb/b port on my 1924 switch, ive tried both cables and i even looked over the troubleshooting page on cisco's site.
    I think I know where I went wrong... please ignore I mentioned "(one of the Fast Ethernet ports, which support trunking)" in an earlier reply. I've connected only 2 switches to a router, ever, the router was a 2600 with 100BaseTX connections...

    Try connecting the router to an 10Mbps port (since the ethernet port on the router is also 10Mbps)

    Currently the government pays my electric bill so those badboys are on constantly.. For on demand practice....

    I was able to steal some feet from my net gear dsl router (currently residing in the dusty underworld called under my desk).

    I hooked it up to a 10 meg port, i get some action.. but cant seem to ping router through it.. oh well we will see later.. NOt too worried currently.. Still got time to work out the little things... Just wanna make sure merchendice works.

    I just recieved my 2507..

    It's asking for user access verifcation..

    Does this mean password reset on this one too?

    That means there's a password word configured on the console port. (assuming you are not telnetting into it).

    Does this mean password reset on this one too?
    Yes, similar to what you did to reset the enable password. This time, instead of changing the enable password, type:
    router(config)#line con 0
    router(config-line)#no login
    router(config-line)#no password
    save, reset the config-reg and reload.

    Instead of the above, I suggest running thru the Setup dialog, save the resulting config, reset the config-reg and reload.

    You're welcome.

    Must be hard studying for two non-Cisco exams with all the cool equipment nearby. Everything OK with the 2507? What IOS does it have?

    Dont remind me johan. Have my study notes in my lap with a 2507 busted open lookin at the internals.. Bahh... Anyway's looks good sofar. I need to figure out the hub part. I think i need to enable a port or somethign attempting to get some activity from it to the switch.. Anyway, I will have all weekend once i get these 2 tests done. Good thing they are somewhat related.

    Here is a printout of the show ver

    IOS (tm) 3000 Software (IGS-IMR-L), Version 11.1(1, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1)

    RouterB uptime is 3 hours, 29 minutes

    System image file is "flash:igs-imr-l.111-18", booted via flash

    Bridging software.
    X.25 software, Version 2.0, NET2, BFE and GOSIP compliant.
    1 Ethernet/IEEE 802.3 interface.

    2 Serial network interfaces.
    32K bytes of non-volatile configuration memory.
    16384K bytes of processor board System flash (Read ONLY)

    I will have to upgrade the ram and the ios later, but as of now it's lookin good.

    I didnt realize it, but the auction also came with/a console cable and 2 patch cables..

    So now i have everything i need. I picked up 2 cisco brand transcievers, and the 2514 came with one transciever.

    This router was the only thing i was waiting for.

    So this weekend Minus the family get together, i'm gonna have a blast..

    I assume you need to configure the Ethernet interface as usual (ip address .. .., no shutdown), and you may need to configure an individual hub port in hub configuration mode. Although I would expect it to work 'by default' once the eth 0 interface 'behind' the hub is configured with an IP address. The memory currently in it is sufficient I think.

    Good luck with the exams. I guess becoming MCSE Security is 'somewhat' more important, but I can imagine you're looking forward to the weekend. Don't forget to party though.

    Did you pick up a book yet? It's best to practice with some 'real-world' scenarios, which are also at www.cisco.com
    I'll see if I can spend some time on writing more TechLabs, and/or create a list with good lab examples from the cisco site.

    Yup, the double series by wendell odom. I noticed the first one talks tons about subnetting and some network+ stuff. So hopefully just a quick brushup and i can start on the second one.

    Yeah, i am a bit concerned about my exams.. We will see how they go. But yes, very excited to get away from MS for ahwhile. I am soo sick of their looong drug out questions. I hate the fact that every question starts with "your the network administrator for ......"

    I'll see if I can spend some time on writing more TechLabs, and/or create a list with good lab examples from the cisco site.
    I think these will be pretty important for the test.

    Oh yeah, the book i bought comes with cisco lab software.. I havent installed it yet, but when i do i will tell all how much i like.

    I found that anthonypanda offers a buy it now on ebay for ram for 2 bux cheaper than on his web site.. Unfort he is located in HK, so your shipping options are limited.

    I bought a V.35 DCE cable from them a while ago, and found that even with the shipping costs inlcuded, they were still cheap. In my case it would be $3 minimum for the RAM.

    I hate the fact that every question starts with "your the network administrator for ......"
    That does get old very fast. But Cisco will be a welcome change, the questions are shorter, straightforward (never really tricky, although sometimes the answers are long sentences with just a very minor detail making the difference), never ambigious (although one could say that about the sims), based on technical facts rather than opinions (although there is 'the Cisco-way' in some cases). Best of all is that the definit answer is always available in Cisco Press material and the Cisco site.

    And compared with CompTIA... well, let's say Cisco is competent.

    I decided to attempt your techlab today.

    Just a question.. When i hook up that DCE DTE cable.. Shouldnt i see a light on the serial port? Also i noticed on your configuring a rip network you have the dte dce hooked up to S2/S0

    But on the hardware pic they are hooked up to the same serial port..

    When they are up (as in no shutdown), they should flicker once in a while, both routers, indepent of eachother. Once you run the clockrate command on the DCE side, they should blink simultaneously. (when show int s0 shows line protocol is up.)

    Also i noticed on your configuring a rip network you have the dte dce hooked up to S2/S0 But on the hardware pic they are hooked up to the same serial port..
    Hmmm, I see what you mean, the diagram in both the Rip Lab and the Hardware Lab show S2. I'll change that to s0, although you can use any serial interface you like... except s2 cause there are only 2 serial interfaces...

    oh yeah

    Change the update timer to 45 seconds, the invalid timer and the holddown timer to 270, and the flush timer to 360 seconds, using the following command:
    Router(config-router)#timers-basic 45 270 270 360

    This gives me an error unless i take out the hyphen

    Thanks again. I thought I removed that one a while back after someone correctly commented the timers basic command is not part of the CCNA exam anyway. I removed the task entirely.

    I assume you already checked the cable connections... it may be the cable... try setting up a connection between other serial ports, to check if it is the cable or the interface.
