Threaded View

I'm sorry about this being here, but there appears to be no other ciso
related newsgroup on the feed I have.

I have been given a couple of Cisco 1601 units, but just the units
themselves, the serial connector and power cord.
I have been trying to get information from the Cisco web site on how I go
about testing these units out, but so far I have come up with nothing that
will help me.

Am I wasting my time here guys? I only took them as I though this would be
great way of learning ciso hardware for free, but without any cd of utils
etc, I am at a complete loss on how to get these units talking...

Any help or pointers would be really appreciated.

If the 1601 units you have are also labeled "LAN Extender" then they are of
a variety that was "simplified" and scaled back for cost savings and
actually relied on specific models of hub routers from which to boot up -
the venerable Cisco 4000 series routers with LAN Extender capable IOS being
one of these.  If these are labeled as I mentioned then they are of very
limited use in learning IOS unless you invest in more gear - and LAN
Extender technology is pretty much a quaint footnote in obsolesence at this
