Objectives
Configure hostnames and IP addresses on a Cisco Internetwork Operating System (IOS) switch
and router using the command-line interface (CLI).
Use Cisco IOS commands to specify or limit access to the device configurations.
Use IOS commands to save the running configuration.
Configure four host devices with IP addresses.
Verify connectivity and troubleshoot any issues.
Scenario
As a recently hired LAN technician, your network manager has asked you to demonstrate your ability
to configure a small LAN. Your tasks include configuring initial settings on a switch and a router using
the Cisco IOS and configuring IP address parameters on host devices to provide end-to-end
connectivity. You are to use one switch (Class-B,) one router (college,) and four hosts/PCs on a
cabled and powered network.

What I did:
In this lab I completed a basic router and switch configuration including four pcs the four PCs were
configured with IP addresses, subnet masks, and default gateways. The switch and the router were
configured with a hostname an IP address for the VLAN 1 virtual management interface as well as other
basic configuration parameters such as passwords to limit access to the device and configure a login
message banner. The router interfaces were configured with separate IP addresses to create to separate
networks, but still allowing communication. The switch (Class-B) was configured with a default gateway,
that allows for testing the connection between it and the hosts on the remote network.
Problems:
The configured IP address on the Student-4 host was configured incorrectly, creating an issue
communicating to that host. Also, when trying to communicate between the two separate networks,
none of the hosts had a default gateway set, creating an error when trying to communicate.
What I learned:
This lab test my knowledge about basic network and PC configuration. Through this chapter I recorded
in my network engineering journal the Cisco CLI commands that I learned. I learned that a layer 2 switch
can be configured with a default gateway to allow packets that are originating from the switch to
traverse across to another network. I learned how to troubleshoot networking devices in a more
advanced method to verify network connectivity and functionality. I also learned how to create an
interface description for later understanding where each interface goes.
