Lab 1.5.2: Basic Router Configuration
Upon completion of this lab, you will be able to:
• Cable a network according to the Topology Diagram.
• Erase the startup configuration and reload a router to the default state.
• Perform basic configuration tasks on a router.
• Configure and activate Ethernet interfaces.
Test and verify configurations.
• Reflect upon and document the network implementation.
In this lab activity, you will create a network that is similar to the one shown in the Topology Diagram.
Begin by cabling the network as shown in the Topology Diagram. You will then perform the initial router
configurations required for connectivity. Use the IP addresses that are provided in the Topology Diagram
to apply an addressing scheme to the network devices. When the network configuration is complete,
examine the routing tables to verify that the network is operating properly. This lab is a shorter version of
Lab 1.5.1: Cabling a Network and Basic Router Configuration and assumes you are proficient in basic
cabling and configuration file management.
