How to connect two different network using router?

Posted: 19 Mar 2015 in CCNA

This tutorial is all about configuration of router to connect two different network.
For example here i have taken two ip from different network.First ip is from network and other ip from network.Now these ip cannot ping each other using hub or switch because they belongs to two different network.
So to make two machine from different network communicate each other we need to use router.Here in this article i will show you how to communicate using routers.

Now go to router and type the below code to assign ip address on router interface and up it ports.



Router#configure terminal

Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.

Router(config)#interface fa0/0

Router(config-if)#ip address

Router(config-if)#no shutdown

Router(config)#interface fa0/1
Router(config-if)#ip address
Router(config-if)#no shutdown


Now test the network using ping command that whether the two pc can communicate with each other or not.


First Check the IP Address of PC:


FastEthernet0 Connection:(default port)
Link-local IPv6 Address.........: FE80::2E0:F7FF:FE33:4587
IP Address......................:
Subnet Mask.....................:
Default Gateway.................:


Now test the communication using PING Command:



Pinging with 32 bytes of data:

Request timed out.
Reply from bytes=32 time=0ms TTL=127
Reply from bytes=32 time=15ms TTL=127
Reply from bytes=32 time=15ms TTL=127

Ping statistics for
Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 3, Lost = 1 (25% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 0ms, Maximum = 15ms, Average = 10ms

Hence you can see both pc can now having communicating with each other.

Now using above concept solve the below question.Take two different network and configure router to make all those pc ping each other or communicate each other.

solve this routing question.
