Connect to a Website
Log into a PC connected to the router, open a web browser, and connect to a website. If you cannot access a website, you must follow the steps in " If You Cannot Connect to a Website." If you successfully accessed a website, you do not need to change the configuration.
Congratulations! You're Done!
If you connected to a website, you have completed the router setup, and you can continue to use the router. You may want to keep this Quick Start Guide for future reference. If you could not to log into a website, see the next section for information on starting the Cisco Router Web Setup software.
If You Cannot Connect to a Website
If you can't connect to the Internet using the factory configuration, or if you have loaded new Cisco IOS software on the router since you installed it, you can configure the router using the Cisco Router Web Setup (CRWS) software. The CRWS software is already loaded on the router and is run from a PC connected to the router.
Starting the CRWS Software
Follow these steps to start the CRWS software:
Step 1 Start, or restart, a PC connected to one of the router Ethernet ports (1, 2, 3, or 4).
Step 2 Open a web browser. Make sure that the browser is set to work in online mode.
•In Internet Explorer, click the File menu, and verify that the "work offline" option is unchecked.
•In Netscape, the default selection in the File menu is set to work online.
Step 3 Type in the following universal resource locator (URL):http://10.10.10.1
If the CRWS home page does not appear when you enter the URL http://10.10.10.1, test the connection between the PC and the router by doing the following:
•Check that the OK LED on the router is on, and check the cable connection between the router and the PC. Be sure that the TO HUB/TO PC button is in the TO PC position.
•If the CRWS home page still does not appear, verify that the web browser's "work offline" option is disabled.
•If the web page still does not appear, verify that your PC is automatically configured to receive an IP address. Follow the instructions in the Cisco Router Web Setup User Guide, which is available on Cisco.com.
Step 4 Click the Router Setup link in the Cisco Router Web Setup home page, and follow the instructions that appear in the page that is displayed.
Step 5 When you complete setup using CRWS, connect to another website, using the connected PC. Setup is complete, and you can continue using the router.

Definitions of Service Request Severity
To ensure that all service requests are reported in a standard format, Cisco has established severity definitions.
Severity 1 (S1)—Your network is "down," or there is a critical impact to your business operations. You and Cisco will commit all necessary resources around the clock to resolve the situation.
Severity 2 (S2)—Operation of an existing network is severely degraded, or significant aspects of your business operation are negatively affected by inadequate performance of Cisco products. You and Cisco will commit full-time resources during normal business hours to resolve the situation.
Severity 3 (S3)—Operational performance of your network is impaired, but most business operations remain functional. You and Cisco will commit resources during normal business hours to restore service to satisfactory levels.
Severity 4 (S4)—You require information or assistance with Cisco product capabilities, installation, or configuration. There is little or no effect on your business operations.
