    Those are dissimilar devices, so you need to use a crossover.

    ??? hhmmmm.... ???

    Re-think your logic Dynamik, I know that you know better than that. Like devices use a crossover and unlike(dissimilar) use a straight-through.

    What have you configured?

    Are you sure you configured an IP address on the correct router Ethernet port? Did you no shut the interface? Is the interface showing UP UP when you do a show ip interface brief.

    What about the switch port -- standard configuration? UP UP?

    I haven't used PT in a month or two, but from the scenarios I was given, a DTE cable was used. I don't know why, I haven't even seen one, yet.

    Thats not possible. When you try to connect the other end of the DCE cable to the switch it will say "The cable cannot be connected to that port". L2 switches don't do clocking anyway.

    SurferDude, what cable are you using and what does the topology look like?

    Try doing a "no shutdown" on the router interface.
