This is a static routing configuration Lab in which we have taken three routers and total having five networks. To make this static routing configuration little more easier and simple i have summarized this static routing configuration lab in just few simple steps. To perform this lab i have used cisco packet tracer software.
Remember before learning static routing configuration you must know how to assign ip address on router and if you don’t have any idea about how to assign ip address to routers or switch don’t worry.
I have written several articles on ccna routing and switching and there you can find and learn how to assign ip address on cisco router and switches or how to assign ip address to any router inside cisco packet tracer.
Watch the below Diagram carefully:
This will be our task.
Step 1:Arrange the device as i have mentioned in above topology diagram.
Take three routers from your packet tracer,two PC or Laptops and required number of wires you need to connect them.
Please don’t make any connection mistakes otherwise your lab will not work.
Step 2: Assign Ip address on each router interface as i have mentioned in Diagram.
As you can clearly see there are three routers and each routers have two interfaces which are in use.So assign proper ip address on each interface and make the port on.
Step 3:Now go to Router0 and configure static routing.
Before you do static routing here ,you must understand the static routing concept first.
Static routing will follow below pattern in global configuration mode.
Router(config)#ip route <indirectly connected network> <subnet mask> <gateway ip to reach that indirectly connected network>
Now we can start Static routing configuration on Router0:
Router(config)#ip route 220.127.116.11 255.0.0.0 18.104.22.168 Router(config)#ip route 22.214.171.124 255.0.0.0 126.96.36.199
Step 4:Now go to the middle router and do below routing configuration.
Router(config)#ip route 188.8.131.52 255.0.0.0 184.108.40.206 Router(config)#ip route 220.127.116.11 255.0.0.0 18.104.22.168
Step 5:Now go to Third and Last Router and configure Routing.
r3(config)#ip route 22.214.171.124 255.0.0.0 126.96.36.199 r3(config)#ip route 188.8.131.52 255.0.0.0 184.108.40.206
