show diag—Lists and displays diagnostic information about the installed controllers, interface processors, and port adapters. Typical examples are network modules, interface cards (WICs, VWICs, HWICs) and advanced integration modules (AIMs).

7 Interface Numbering

Each individual interface (port) on a Cisco 1841 router is identified by a number. A Cisco 1841 router contains the following wide-area network (WAN) and local-area network (LAN) interface types:

Two onboard Fast Ethernet LAN interfaces

Two slots in which you can install WICs, VWICs (data only), and HWICs

The numbering format for the slots is interface-type 0/slot-number/port-number. Table 4 summarizes the interface numbering.

Table 4 Interface Numbering 

Slot Number
Slot Type
Slot Numbering Range
Example 1

Onboard Ports

Fast Ethernet

0/0 and 0/1

interface fastethernet 0/0

Slot 0

HWIC/WIC/VWIC2

0/0/0 to 0/0/3

interface serial 0/0/0

line async 0/0/0

Slot 1

HWIC/WIC/VWIC2

0/1/0 to 0/1/3

interface serial 0/1/0

line async 0/1/0

1 The interfaces listed are examples only; other possible interface types are not listed.

2 VWICs are data-only in Cisco 1841 routers.



Note On the Cisco 1841 router, the numbering format for configuring an async interface is 0/slot/port. To configure the line associated with an async interface, simply use the interface number to specify the async line. For example, line 0/0/0 specifies the line associated with interface serial 0/0/0 on a WIC-2A/S in slot 0. Similarly, line 0/1/1 specifies the line associated with interface async 0/1/1 on a WIC-2AM in slot 1.


8 Perform Initial Configuration

You can configure your router by using one of the following tools:

Cisco Router and Security Device Manager (SDM)—See the "Initial Configuration Using Cisco Router and Security Device Manager" section.

Setup command facility—See the "Initial Configuration Using Setup Command Facility" section.

Command-line interface (CLI)—See the "Initial Configuration Using Cisco CLI—Manual Configuration" section.

Initial Configuration Using Cisco Router and Security Device Manager

If the following messages appear at the end of the startup sequence, Cisco Router and Security Device Manager (SDM) is installed on your router:

yourname con0 is now available

Press RETURN to get started.

For instructions on configuring your router by using SDM, refer to the Cisco Router and Security Device Manager (SDM) Quick Start Guide that shipped with your router.

Initial Configuration Using Cisco CLI—Manual Configuration

This section shows how to display a command-line interface (CLI) prompt for configuration using the CLI, and it directs you to documentation for the CLI configuration. You can use the CLI if the following messages appear at the end of the startup sequence:

--- System Configuration Dialog ---

At any point you may enter a question mark '?' for help.
Use ctrl-c to abort configuration dialog at any prompt.
Default settings are in square brackets '[]'.

Would you like to enter the initial configuration dialog? [yes/no]:

If these messages do not appear, SDM and a default configuration file were installed on the router at the factory. To use SDM to configure the router, see the "Initial Configuration Using Cisco Router and Security Device Manager" section.

For help with interface and port numbering, see the "Interface Numbering" section.


Step 1 To proceed with manual configuration using the CLI, enter no when the power-up messages end:

Would you like to enter the initial configuration dialog? [yes/no]: no

Step 2 Press Return to terminate autoinstall and continue with manual configuration:

Would you like to terminate autoinstall? [yes] Return

Several messages appear, ending with a line similar to the following:

Copyright (c) 1986-2004 by Cisco Systems, Inc.
Compiled <date> <time> by <person>

Step 3 Press Return to display the Router> prompt:

...
flashfs[4]: Initialization complete.
Router>

Step 4 Enter privileged EXEC mode:

Router> enable 
Router#

Step 5 For configuration procedures, refer to the applicable configuration instructions in the Cisco 2800 series software configuration documents. See the "Where to Go Next" section for information about accessing these documents.


Note To avoid losing work you have completed, be sure to save your configuration occasionally as you proceed. Use the copy running-config startup-config command to save the configuration to NVRAM.


Step 6 When you have finished the initial configuration, verify the initial configuration. See the "Verify the Initial Configuration" section for verification procedures.


Verify the Initial Configuration

To verify that the new interfaces are operating correctly, perform the following tests:

To verify that the interfaces are operating correctly and that the interfaces and line protocol are in the correct state—up or down—enter the show interfaces command.

To display a summary status of the interfaces configured for IP, enter the show ip interface brief command.

To verify that you configured the correct host name and password, enter the show configuration command.

When you complete and verify the initial configuration, your Cisco  router is ready to configure for specific functions. See the "Where to Go Next" section for information about locating documentation for advanced configuration procedures.
