that will also be given to clients via DHCP when they connect to this system. Go ahead and apply the change. We can also come down here and configure routing. Now once again, this is the default gateway for the WAN side of the router. This is not the default gateway used by client systems. Client systems will use the LAN IP address of the router, the 192.168.1.1 address, for the default gateway. But on the WAN side, we need to know what the default gateway is at the ISP site. Now, by default it's going to automatically get the default gateway address when it connects to the ISP, but if you needed to, you could turn this option off, and then manually enter the IP address of the gateway to use. The last thing I want to look at here is MAC cloning. The best way to understand MAC cloning is to read the note here at the top of the screen. It explains fairly well how MAC cloning works. It says some ISPs will register the MAC address of your computer when you dial up to the Internet for the first time via modem. So if you had to router your network to share your Internet connection, the ISP will not accept it. If this happens, you need to use MAC address cloning on the router. Essentially, what that will do is grab the MAC address of my workstation here and use it as the MAC address for the router's WAN interface. Here, you can see that the web interface picked up the MAC address assigned to this workstation's network board and populated it here. If I want to, I could click these two options here to clone the MAC address of my workstation to the WAN interface on this router. We don't actually have to do that, so we're not going to. So at this point, our router is set up. It should be communicating with the ISP and we should be getting Internet access. Now, if I look down here, notice that the yellow icon with the exclamation point hasdisappeared off of my network connection. Because I configured the network board in the systemwith the default gateway address of this router, I'm now able to go out on the Internet and browseweb pages. Let's test it out and see if it works. Let's go to testout.com, and I am able to access the Internet. Summary 12:47-13:08 That's it for this demonstration. In this demo, we talked about how to configure a SOHO router. We first looked at the physical connections that have to be made before you can configure it. Then we talked about the logical IP addressing scheme that has to be used in order to access the web- based interface on the router. Then we talked about how to configure the WAN side of the router, and then we ended this demonstration by looking at how you configure the LAN side of the router. Configuring a Wireless Access Point 0:00-11:47 In this demonstration, we're going to practice configuring a wireless access point. Now in order to do this, I first had to connect the wireless access point to this workstation directly with a WAN cablebecause the wireless part of the access point doesn't work yet, we got to configure it, and I also connected the WAN port on the access point to my cable modem, so at this point we're ready to configure it. So I'm going to come down here

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
