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.
