My company has a T1 line that goes into the provider’s Netopia router. I’d like to connect that router to our Cisco 1811 router to take advantage of the firewall, DHCP, VLAN, and NAT features. So, this is what I’m trying to do:
Internet — T1 Router — Cisco 1811 — Servers and Workstations
The Netopia router is a T1 router with 1 WAN port and 8 built-in Ethernet ports. The Cisco 1811 has 2 WAN FE ports and 8 Managed Switch ports.
First of all, I’d like to ask if this is even possible to do. If it is, please tell me how to physically connect the routers (what port to what port, and what kind of cable).
