Unformatted text preview: MOHAWK COLLEGE OF APPLIED ARTS AND TECHNOLOGY Department of Electrotechnology EE368 Lab 9 Home Networking Lab OBJECTIVES: To familiarize the student with Networking they can use at home:- Create Users- Setup Peer to Peer network- Set up and Use Workgroups- Setup and Manage Network Shares o Modify Share permissions o Modify NTFS Permissions REFERENCES: Router configuration LinkSYS Router Manual on Milli or www.linksys.com EQUIPMENT: Desktop (Dell) PC Windows XP LINKSYS cable modem router - Model # BEFSR41 Ver. 1, 2,3, or 4 Network Cables. Note: Cables must be wound properly at the end of the lab . PROCEDURES: Part A Configuring the router 1. Power up the Cable Modem Router by inserting the adapter plug and using a pen (do not use a pencil - lead is conductive and will short the router) press the reset button and hold it in for 5 seconds. This causes the router to return to its default settings. The router has two types of interfaces one is referred to as the WAN interface which is implemented as a 10BaseT (10Mb UTP Ethernet connection), the LAN interfaces are implemented as a 4 port 10/100 Mb switch. 2. Use one of the network cables running to your desk to connect the routers WAN interface to the main network. Connect your computer to one of the four LAN ports of the switch using your straight through cable. The LAN/switch side of the router will be your SUBNET. EE368 Lab#9 W09 Page 1 Verify the connections by recording the status of the link lights on both the WAN and the LAN connections, also record the speed at which the connection has been made, some of the routers indicate this on the front display, and this is also available from the XP status GUI display. 3. On the Windows XP client computer use the START +RUN + cmd option to open the command prompt window again. Using the Command Line Interface ( CLI ), type IPCONFIG /RELEASE and than IPCONFIG /RENEW and record the IP parameters on your results sheet. Your computer is now configured to operate using IP parameters provided by the DHCP server software in the router, the parameters provided by the router are within it default subnet. You can achieve the same by using the GUI . Right click again on the little networking computer icon and click Repair 4. Enter the address 192.168.1.1 into the internet browser and when the login box appears leave the username blank and enter the password admin . Configuring the WAN interface 5. After the device has been reset the WAN interface of the router is set for dynamic configuration and will be setup by a WAN side DHCP server if there is one present. 6. From the Home page click on the Status tab. Select DHCP Release and note what happens to the WAN configuration values select DHCP Renew and record the WAN parameters provided by the DHCP server in your results sheet....
