      Sky Broadband Using Cisco 837 Router


      I picked up a Cisco 837 router and want to use this as my connection to the internet. Easy Right ?. Hmmmmmm

      From the start, I cleared the NVRAM, flashed the ROM with a later IOS which would let me connect via SDM and went from there.

      I have got all the settings including name and password from the old SKY router.

      However when I try to create a connection in SDM or use a running-config from web discussions (moddified with my own values !) I can never ping an outside IP address, even though the line is active etc.

      Although I work in IT I have zero Cisco knowledge but surely it should be an easy task to set up a connection to the internet.

      I would really appreciate it if someone could post a very simplistic running-config just to get this working. I don't need any help with security etc just the basics to get a ping working.

      I may be chasing my tail as I'm not even sure if the router is working 100%, but would appreciate any help.

      Thanks in advance.

      Here is a tutorial on setting up a Cisco for a BT line, it should be virtually the same with Sky. Not for the faint hearted
