The interfaces on a router provide network connectivity to the router. Routers also have ports for LAN and WAN connectivity. The LAN interfaces usually include Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, Fiber Distributed Data Interface (FDDI), or Token Ring. The AUI port is used to provide LAN connectivity.
This short IT training video answers this question quickly and clearly and also describes the pinouts for sending and receiving data. This microlearning lesson is one of many that are available on the Cisco Learning Network, in our Cisco Answers IT series.
The video provides procedures for configuring the basic parameters of your Cisco router, including global parameter settings, routing protocols, interfaces, and command-line access. It also describes the default configuration on startup.
In this video a Cisco 1700 router which has a variety of ports – Console, Aux, Ethernet, WAN, and Voice (RJ-11). While Console, Aux, WAN, and Ethernet ports are all RJ-45, they are very different in the functionality.+
The wireless router automatically detects if your ISP connection type is Automatic IP, Static IP, PPPoE, PPTP and L2TP. Under some connection types, you can get a new IP address by using Enable and Disable WAN.
This Cisco router training applies to all IOS-based Cisco routers. Learn how to give the router a name, assign a static IP address to an interface, how to assign a DHCP address, and how to save the configuration.
The Cisco 2811 ISR. This line of Cisco Routers was the first generation (G1) of the ISR line of Routers and are still found running networks in the field today. These routers make for a great addition to any lab network and are also used for studying for the Cisco CCNA, CCNP, and CCIE certifications.
