I am a system admin and would like to learn configuring a router, but I have no experience with any type of routers. I know you use Cisco IOS to configure the router (I don't know the IOS command set either), but is there a windows based software from cisco that you could use to configure the router as well??
I have a spare 2600 router around with a WIC card, so I would like to use that as my starting point. My company's internet T1 line comes with the 1700 series router pre-configured, so I would like to learn how to configure one in case that router is dead. Is there any good books that you guys can recommend, is the CCNA training video from Learnkey any good to start with?
I would like to get more information especially those toward configuring a router with an internet T1 line.
