Petri forums user mecatch…@yahoo.com emailed the following message to me via PM but I would like to share it with all of you because I think that there are many out there who would benefit from the answer.
Please, I need your help. I just finished configuring my Cisco 2501. I can ping the IP address of the ethernet port once I connect my laptop using a cross over cable direct on the ethernet port of the Router.
The problem I have is this. Am trying to connect several systems to the router. Once I connect the router to a 24 port switch and then try to ping the IP address, I get time-out.
Please, how can I setup the Cisco 2501 so that I can connect it on a switch and be able to ping it.
