Newbie 2621xm Internet Access

Hi folks, I've recently acquired a Cisco 2621xm router. I want to be able to use it to provide internet access to my network through my broadband connection. Is this possible, and if so, how do I go about configuring it?

If you need any more info let me know!

Best regards,

You want to use ip nat

interface FastEthernet1/0 description Your internet access ip address dhcp < depending on how you get your connection>

ip nat outside

interface FastEthernet1/1 ip address ip nat inside

ip nat inside source list 1 interface FastEthernet1/0 overload access-list 1 permit

Hope that helps, DMc

Hi again, Thanks for the information. Sorry to be a pain in the ass, but would you mind going through the process of configuring it from when I log in to the router? I'm very new to Cisco routers etc.

I gave it a shot but to be perfectly honest I don't think I changed anything for the better (or worse!), in fact, I think I had no impact at all! If you, or anybody else, could help I would be truly grateful.

Thanks for your time.
