Basic Router Config on Packet Tracer

    Click on the router – then click on CLI.

    This configuration will set up a router between two networks.

    Router#configure terminal
    Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
    Router(config)#hostname MyRouter
    MyRouter(config)#enable secret mypassword
    MyRouter(config)#interface FastEthernet 0/0
    MyRouter(config-if)#ip address
    MyRouter(config-if)#no shutdown
    MyRouter(config)#interface Serial 0/0/0
    MyRouter(config-if)#ip address
    MyRouter(config-if)#clock rate 64000
    MyRouter(config-if)#no shutdown
    MyRouter#copy running-config startup-config

    This configuration sets the hostname of the router to “MyRouter”, sets an enable secret password, configures two interfaces (one FastEthernet and one Serial), assigns IP addresses to them, and enables them. Finally, the configuration is saved to non-volatile memory so that it will be retained after a reboot.

    Note that this configuration assumes that the FastEthernet interface is numbered “0/0” and the Serial interface is numbered “0/0/0”. If your interfaces are numbered differently, you will need to adjust the configuration accordingly.
