Overview

The Overview window provides you with basic information about the router LAN, WAN, and Firewall configurations.

LAN Fields

The LAN fields display the interface, the IP address, and DHCP server information for the LAN connection.

Interface—The name of the LAN interface. For example, Fast Ethernet 0. If Cisco CP Express cannot identify the router's LAN interfaces, it displays the number of configured LAN interfaces in this field.

IP/Mask—The IP address followed by the number of subnet bits, which represents the subnet mask. LAN IP addresses are often drawn from the private IP address range. For example an IP address of 10.10.10.1 using a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 would be shown as 10.10.10.1/24.

DHCP Server—Either Configured or Not Configured.

DHCP Pool—If a DHCP server has been configured, this field contains the IP address range available to DHCP clients. For example, if the LAN interface is configured with an IP address in the 10.10.10.0 network, the DHCP pool may be configured with a range of addresses from 10.10.10.1 through 10.10.10.254.

If Cisco CP Express cannot identify the LAN interfaces on the router, it displays the total number of supported LAN interfaces, and the total number of configured LAN interfaces.

Internet (WAN) Fields

The Internet fields display the WAN interface name, the type of WAN connection configured and the IP address subnet mask information.

Interface—The name of the WAN interface, for example ATM 0/1. If Cisco CP Express cannot identify the router's WAN interfaces, it displays the number of configured WAN interfaces in this field.

Connection Type—The type of WAN connection, for example ADSL, or G.SHDSL

IP/Mask—The IP address followed by the number of subnet bits, which represents the subnet mask. For example an IP address of 172.16.33.15 using a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 would be shown as 172.16.33.15/24.

If Cisco CP Express cannot identify the WAN interfaces on the router, it displays the total number of supported WAN interfaces, and the total number of configured WAN interfaces.

Save the router's running configuration to the PC in this step, so that you can restore it to your router if you need to. Use the Browse button to select the directory to store the configuration in.

Step 2: Write down these steps and then reset the router

Since you will lose contact with the router when you click Reset, you must understand how you are going to reconnect after you reset the router.

a) Configure the PC with an IP address on the 10.10.10.0 network

Configure the PC to be on the 10.10.10.0 subnet. Depending on the router, you must either configure the PC to obtain an IP address automatically, or configure it with a static IP address in the 10.10.10.0 subnet.

If you have a router listed in the following table, configure the PC to obtain an IP address automatically. Consult Reconfiguring Your PC with a Dynamic or a Static IP Address to learn how to do this.

If you have one of these routers, configure the PC to obtain an IP address automatically

Cisco 8xx, Cisco 180x, Cisco 1805, Cisco 1811 and 1812.


If you have a router listed in the following table, configure the PC with an IP address in the 10.10.10.0 subnet, between 10.10.10.2 and 10.10.10.6 using a subnet mask of 255.255.255.248. Consult Reconfiguring Your PC with a Dynamic or a Static IP Address to learn how to do this.

If you have one of these routers, configure the PC with a static IP address in the 10.10.10.0 subnet

Cisco 18xx, 28xx, and 38xx.


b) Point your web browser to http(s)://10.10.10.1

After reset, the router has the original factory default IP address of 10.10.10.1, and you must use this address to reconnect.

c) Log into Cisco CP Express again with username cisco and password cisco.

The username and password have also been returned to their default settings and these original values must be used to log on to Cisco CP Express.
