1. Setup the PacketTracer 5.3.3
2. Use it to draw and simulate the following networks.
3. There are 3 sub-parts a, b and c. For each part, if all PCs can ping each other, then your configuration is correct. Note that the network mask is 255.255.255.0.
PC1 can ping PC2 and vice-versa. Give any IP addresses.
What cable is used to connect PC1 and PC2? _____________________________________________ Explain why such a cable is used? ______________________________________________________ Explain why you choose these IP addresses for the nodes. __________________________________ __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
PC1 can ping PC2 and vice-versa. Give any IP address
Are the cables used in 1b the same as the one used in 1a? __________________________________ Explain your answer. ________________________________________________________________
Must the assigned IP addresses of the two nodes be in the same subnet for them to communicate? ___________________________ Explain your answer. ________________________________________________________________
PC1, PC2, PC11 and PC22 can ping each other.
Use network mask = 255.255.255.0
You must configure the fa0/0 to IP address : _______________________ You must configure the fa0/1 to IP address : _______________________
There are two ways to configure the router.
ii. Command Line Interface (CLI) based
i. Window based Steps
To configure the IP Address & routing on the router:
a) Double-click the router. A pop-up window will come up
b) Select the middle sub-menu (config)
c) To configure IP address, select the interfaces
d) To configure routing, select routing
ii. Command Line based Steps
To configure the IP Address on the router:
(Note: The Bold character is what you need to type)
a) Click the CLI
b) Press RETURN to get started (in command line mode).
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z. Router(config)#interface fa0/0
Router(config-if)#ip address 22.214.171.124 255.255.255.0
%LINK-5-CHANGED: Interface FastEthernet0/0, changed state to up Router(config-if)#interface fa0/1
Router(config-if)#ip address 126.96.36.199 255.255.255.0
%LINK-5-CHANGED: Interface FastEthernet0/1, changed state to up Router(config-if)#exit
The command format for IP address configuration:
Select the interface.
Router(config-if)# ip address <IP_address> <Network_mask>
Part 2: Setup Wireless Connection Using Packet Tracer
Select a PC, power down the PC.
Change the NIC to a Wireless NIC.
Power on the PC.
Connect it to an Access Point.
Configure the IP Address on PC0 and PC1, both PC should be able to ping each other.
Configure a network topology as below and all PCs must be able to ping each other.
Part 3: Understanding Routing Using Packet Tracer 5.3
The network mask is 255.255.255.0
Steps to configure the IP Address & routing on the router: i. Double-click the router. A pop-up window will come up
ii. Select the middle sub-menu (config)
iii. To configure IP address, select the interfaces
iv. To configure routing, select routing
Use packet tracer to draw and simulate the following network below
Fill in the blank to provide your own addressing
No| Name| Value| |
1| Network Mask (for the whole network)| 255.255.255.0| | 2| Network 1 Address| | |
3| Network 2 Address| | |
4| Network 3 Address| | |
a) Give your own IP addressing for the above network.
b) Configure static routing on Router1 and Router2
c) Make sure that every station including the router can ping every other station....
