Hello All,

I'm new to Cisco networking, and I bought a Cisco 2610 for my CCNA lab, and it was bare-bones. I need to add a modular card (I think) to allow this router to run an additional subnet on my existing network that comprises of a SOHO Netgear WPN824N and a Linksys 5-port switch.

Just in case a description is needed:

  • My network's main router will be the Netgear mentioned above, and it connects to my cable modem
  • The Linksys switch carries the workbench and connected PCs for lab purposes, and also carries a print server

What I want to accomplish is setting up the Cisco 2610 to run on a cable fed to it from the Linksys Switch to the Cisco router. I'm not sure if I can use the AUX port as a WAN to feed in from the Linksys Swtich and the Ethernet port as the LAN port feeding an additional D-Link 8-port switch. If I need a modular card, I need to know which one I would require, and how the cabling will run to and from the Cisco router.

Any information, hints, and tips will be very greatly appreciated.

Not to offend but do you know what a 2610 is used for? You can find the basics on this router here and you can find the modules and what they are used for here. I have not had experience with this router first hand so at this time I can not give you the exact information you need. I can only point you in the right direction. Happy networking. (You could always ask the professor teaching the CCNA classes) :thumbup2:

Yes, I know what the 2610 is for, and I'm trying to set it up to allow my internal FTP server to join my registered domain so I can make this FTP accessible from the web. This is part of my CCNA lab project, which I'm doing independantly, which in turn means that I am my own professor. I figure the best way to learn is by practical application...that and classes are quite pricey, and I've always been self-taught.

I also know the basics - but my question isn't covered by them.

Edit: I'm Network+ certified, so please forego any questions about my knowledge of networking. The only problem I'm having is a lack of Cisco Router knowledge, as they are their own breed of beast altogether.
