Hi Pete,

I came here looking for specific guidance. You are sending me to the Cisco site which I had already mentioned did not prove to be helpful. You gave me a link to go search for documents, which is what I have done for nearly 4 days! I need more specific help.

I have a router which is going to replace an old Linksys router. I need it configured for DHCP and cannot find good directions to get the router started. The cisco CP program is not giving me access to configure the router. I need help to get initial port setup.

Thanks.

I sent a message this morning in response to your answer and I am still waiting for a response.

Thanks.

I have a Cisco 891FW router which has scant details on getting initial setup done. I have looked at Cisco documentation and cannot find anything specific about this router. I have downloaded the Cisco CP Professional and even that does not give me options to configure the router. I maybe using it wrong.

Basically, I want to replace a linksys home router in a small office setup. The router should be configured for DHCP and port forwarding. It will connect to a T1 modem and then distribute addresses to the network. How can I configure ports for this? I am comfortable using the CLI, but can also use the GUI if available.

Thanks.
