Hi all,
I'm not finishing reading book yet but I have 2 routers: 1 2501 & 2514 and I want to set them up. I just don't know how to set up the back to back cable and the transceiver in order to have 2 routers run into one PC. Please help. Thank you all.

    Back-to-Back Frame Relay Hybrid Switching [Frame Relay] - Cisco Systems


    Frame Relay if you have a DCE/DTE cable and a serial port on each router.

    Here is the cable I use.

    If you have a transceiver on each one and a crossover cable between the two then you would do something like.... (Don't quote me...)

    On router 1

    en
    conf t
    int e0
    ip address 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0
    no shut

    press ctrl + z

    write mem

    on router 2

    en
    conf t
    int e0
    ip address 192.168.1.2 255.255.255.0
    no shut

    press ctrl + z

    write mem



    then you can ping back and forth - from r2

    ping 192.168.1.1

    and it should work.

    Thanks Jbrad. What about the transceiver, do I still have to connect them together or just don't have to. I am confused where they go.

    The 2500 routers dont have a ethernet port so you have to attach the transceivers to the AUI ports on the routers.

    yep. on mine it's the port on the left that says AUI. just connect the transceiver there on both of them then run a crossover ethernet cable between the transceivers. the interface will show up as ethernet 0.

    Don't get discouraged JH! I was right were you are now a few weeks ago. Swimming trying to put everything into context. It will start to come together for you. TL has a good way of explaining everything so it starts to stick. I read 2 ch's then go back and re-read them and take more notes. It is starting to stick. I am just going to be finishing up CH 6 today.

    Yeah I had to go back and forth between CBT nugget videos and TL's book and doing labs before I "got" most of it. after it clicks though it's not hard at all :)
