To connect a server, PC, workstation, or other Ethernet device to a built-in Ethernet switch port on the router, follow these steps.


Caution Do not turn on the server, PC, workstation, or other Ethernet device until you have completed all connections to the router.


Step 1 Connect one end of the yellow Ethernet cable to a built-in Ethernet switch port on the router.

Step 2 Connect the other end of the cable to the RJ-45 port on the network interface card (NIC) that is installed in the PC, server, or workstation.

Step 3 (Optional) Connect additional servers, PCs, or workstations to the other built-in Ethernet switch ports.


Connecting an External Ethernet Switch (Optional)

If more than four PCs need to be connected to each other in an office, connect an external Ethernet switch to one of the router's built-in switch ports, and then connect additional PCs to that switch.

Figure 4-5 shows an external Ethernet switch connected to a built-in Ethernet switch port on the router. Although the figure shows a Cisco Secure Router 520 Ethernet-to-Ethernet router, this procedure applies to all Cisco Secure Router 520 Series routers.

(Optional) To connect the router to an external Ethernet switch, follow these steps:


Step 1 Connect one end of the yellow Ethernet cable to a built-in Ethernet switch port on the router.

Step 2 Connect the other end of the cable to an available port on the Ethernet switch to add an additional Ethernet connection.

Step 3 Turn on the Ethernet switch.


Connecting a Broadband Modem

This section applies only to the Cisco Secure Router 520 Ethernet-to-Ethernet router.

You can connect to the Internet by connecting the router to a broadband modem. Figure 4-6 shows a broadband modem connected to a Ethernet WAN port on a Cisco Secure Router 520 Ethernet-to-Ethernet router.

Figure 4-6 Connecting to a Broadband Modem

To connect the router to an installed DSL, cable, or long-reach Ethernet modem, follow these steps:


Step 1 Connect one end of the yellow cable to the Ethernet WAN FE4 port.

Step 2 Connect the other end of the cable to an available port on the modem.

To determine which port on the modem to connect to, follow the instructions provided with your broadband modem.

Step 3 Turn on the broadband modem.


Connecting an ADSL Line—ADSLoPOTS Port

This section applies only to the Cisco Secure Router 520 ADSL-over-POTS router.

Figure 4-7 shows the asymmetric digital subscriber line over plain old telephone service (ADSLoPOTS) port on the router connected to an ADSL line.


Note The DSL line must have been provisioned by your service provider and correctly configured so that the ADSL CD LED shows the status. If the ADSL CD LED is not on, contact the DSL service provider.

You can connect the ADSL cable directly to a cable wall jack or you can connect it to the wall jack using a splitter.


To connect the ADSL cable, perform one of the following, as appropriate:

To connect the ADSL cable directly to a cable wall jack see Figure 4-7. Then follow these steps:

Connect one end of the ADSL cable to the ADSLoPOTS port on the router.

Connect the other end of the cable to the wall jack.

To connect the ADSL cable to a cable wall jack using a splitter, see Figure 4-8. Then follow these steps:


Note Although Figure 4-8 shows an ADSL-over-ISDN (ADSLoISDN) port, the connection to the splitter is the same for both ADSLoPOTS and ADSLoISDN ports.


Connect the RJ-11 end of the ADSL cable to the ADSLoPOTS port on the router.

Connect the other RJ-11 end of the ADSL cable to the local ADSL connector port on the ADSL splitter. The ADSL splitter is provided by the DSL service provider.

Connect the unshielded Category 5 cable from the outside ADSL port on the splitter to a wall jack.


Note You must provide the unshielded Category 5 cable for connecting to the splitter. The splitter is provided by the DSL service provider.



Connecting an ADSL Line—ADSLoISDN Port

This section applies only to the Cisco Secure Router 520 ADSL-over-ISDN router. The procedure for connecting an asymmetric digital subscriber line (ADSL) depends on the router and, in some cases, on the location.


Note The DSL line must have been provisioned by your service provider and correctly configured so that the ADSL CD LED shows the status. If the ADSL CD LED is not on, contact the DSL service provider.



Note You must provide the unshielded Category 5 cable for connecting to the ADSL ISDN splitter. The ADSL ISDN splitter is provided by the DSL service provider.


Figure 4-8 shows the ADSLoISDN port on the router connected to a cable wall jack using a splitter.

To connect the ADSL cable, perform one of the following, as appropriate:

To connect the ADSL cable directly to a cable wall jack see Figure 4-7. Then follow these steps:


Note Although Figure 4-7 shows an ADSLoPOTS port, the connection to the wall jack is the same for both ADSLoISDN and ADSLoPOTS ports.


Connect one end of the ADSL cable to the ADSLoISDN port on the router.

Connect the other end of the cable to the wall jack.

To connect the ADSL cable to a cable wall jack using a splitter, see Figure 4-8. Then follow these steps:

Connect the RJ-11 end of the ADSL cable to the ADSLoISDN port on the router.

Connect the other RJ-11 end of the ADSL cable to the local ADSL connector port on the ADSL splitter. The ADSL splitter is provided by the DSL service provider.

Connect the unshielded Category 5 cable from the outside ADSL port on the splitter to a wall jack.


Note You must provide the unshielded Category 5 cable for connecting to the ADSL ISDN splitter. The ADSL ISDN splitter is provided by the DSL service provider.



Connecting the AC Adapter

Figure 4-9 shows how to connect the AC adapter to the router and to an electrical outlet.


Warning The device is designed to work with TN power systems. Statement 19



Warning This product relies on the building's installation for short-circuit (overcurrent) protection. Ensure that a fuse or circuit breaker no larger than 120VAC, 20A U.S. (240VAC, 16 to 20A international) is used on the phase conductors (all current-carrying conductors). The fuse or circuit breaker must have adequate safety approvals recognized by the country of usage. Statement 119

To connect the AC adapter to the router and to an electrical outlet, follow these steps:


Step 1 Connect one end of the power supply cable into the input jack on the router.

Step 2 Connect the other end of the power supply cable to the AC adapter.

Step 3 Plug the power cord of the AC adapter into an electrical outlet.


Connecting a Terminal or PC to the Console Port

The console port is a service port to which you can connect a terminal or PC either to configure the software by using the command-line interface (CLI) or to troubleshoot problems with the router.

Figure 4-10 shows a DB-9 connector from a PC connected to the console port on the router. Although the figure shows a Cisco Secure Router 520 Ethernet-to-Ethernet router, this procedure applies to all Cisco Secure Router 520 Series routers.

To connect the router's console port to a terminal or PC, follow these steps:


Step 1 Connect the RJ-45 connector on the light blue cable to the router's console port.

Step 2 Connect the DB-9 connector to a terminal or PC.


Connecting an Asynchronous Modem to the Console Port

The Cisco Secure Router 520 Series routers support the dial backup function, which allows a user to connect an asynchronous (analog) modem to the console port as a backup link to the WAN port in case the ADSL service goes down.


Note To connect an asynchronous modem to the console port, you must have an optional router modem cable. Contact your router vendor to order this cable.


Figure 4-11 shows an asynchronous modem connected to the console port on the router. Although the figure shows a Cisco Secure Router 520 Ethernet-to-Ethernet router, this procedure applies to all Cisco Secure Router 520 Series routers.

To connect the console port on the router to an asynchronous modem, follow these steps:


Step 1 Connect the RJ-45 end of the router modem cable to the console port.

Step 2 Connect the DB-25 connector end of the router modem cable to an available port on the asynchronous modem.

Step 3 Connect one end of the RJ-11 telephone cable to a wall jack, and then connect the other end of the RJ-11 cable to the modem.

Step 4 (Optional) Connect one end of an RJ-11 telephone cable to a telephone, fax, or other device, and then connect the other end of the RJ-11 cable to the modem.
