Hi I brought a cisco 877 of trademe.. so I can IPv6 on xnet

No luck in connecting .. looks like I need to update IOS to enable ipv6

Do you need to have a maintenance contract for this? or is it free downloads?

Anyone done the update is it easy?

Also do you use Cisco Configuration Professional CCP?

You need a contract to get IOS updates. You may find them on the net though. What does it have now?

I have always used the CLI for all config.

I will need to check version when I get home..

I did a hard reset on router.. and it connects to 10.10.10.2
But I can't get to router via webpage 10.10.10.1

I can connect with CLI via console cable.. and update CLI.. but I am a newbie to Cisco.. and big learning curve??

Do you know why I can't connect using webpage to router?

Pretty sure its not enabled by default. Pretty sure its something to do with enabling http server.

To check the IOS version do a show version.

There are only two main images for the Cisco 877 - Advanced Security and Advanced IP services.  You need the Advanced IP services to do IPv6.  And yes you need a support contract to download updated IOS from Cisco.

To check which image you have, login via the console and enter "show version".

With regards to the web interface, it all depends if this is enabled in the config - first enter "enable" and then "show run" to look at the current config.  'ip http server' is one command you are looking for.  also if you run "dir" you can see the files in the flash memory - if it has been installed with some kind of web interface you will see additional files other than the one it used to boot.

Hopefully this will help you in the right direction :)

Dean,

Personal opinion of course, but you're *much* better off to learn the CLI than you are the Web GUI. Most companies won't use the GUI to configure things, so if you're interested in Cisco stuff for job prospects then I'd start with the CLI and go from there. It's a bit more confusing there's no doubt, but it'll help you in the long run.

If you get stuck finding a firmware, Geekzone has the ability to send private messages to people :)

Totally agree re learning the CLI.

Unless you are a business it will cost far too much to get smartnet support. On the up side, they replace routers when they fail =P.

The RRP for an 8x5xNBD SmartNet contract for an 877 is $96/year. Not too bad given this gets you next business day hardware replacement, access to the TAC for support and cisco.com for software downloads. Most IT resellers should be able to sell you a contract.

If you can login sucessfully..

router>en
(password usually 'cisco' if blankish)
router#>erase start

and then reboot. BUT... don't expect to have DHCP enabled etc afterwards. Its all done via commands from scratch.

If you have simply got it to get into Ipv6.. I suspect you might have got a bit out of your league starting with a Cisco IOS based system if you have never done any work on a switch or router before.

They're not your average adsl box.

I stand corrected, didnt know they went that cheap on smaller devices.

Wow

I just upgraded my router to a Cisco 877 that I got from trademe..and setup into IPv6...

Its made a huge difference to my gaming & setups..
I (& my brother) have
- 2 x xBox360s
- 2 x PS3s

I used to have to have port forwarding for 1 Xbox & 1 PS3.. as you can't port forward to both 360s on old ADSL IPv4 modems.
Now, IPv6 allows you to get rid of NAT, and have unique real IP addresses for each console.. and they are fully featured.. and when you do Xbox Live test conection.. you don't get Strict/Moderate issues... as your not using NAT

Also, my speed tests have improved..

Get yourself upgraded.. also IPv6 protects you for future when IP addresses run out...
