Step 2: Change display names of the nework devices.
1. To change the display names of the network devices, click the device icon on the Logical workspace.
2. Click the Config tab in the device configuration window.
3. Enter the new name of the newly added device into the Display Name field according to the Addressing Table.
Step 3: Add the physical cabling between devices on the workspace
Using the device selection box, add the physical cabling between devices on the workspace.
1. The PC will need a copper straight-through cable to connect to the wireless router. Select the copper straight-through cable in the device selection box and attach it to the FastEthernet0 interface of the PC and the GigabitEthernet 1 interface of the wireless router.
2. The wireless router will need a copper cross-over cable to connect to the cable modem. Select the copper cross-over cable in the device-selection box and attach it to the Internet interface of the wireless router and the Port 1 interface of the cable modem.
3. The cable modem will need a Coaxial cable to connect to the Internet cloud. Select the Coaxial cable in the device-selection box and attach it to the Port 0 interface of the cable modem and the Coaxial 7 interface of the Internet cloud.
Part 2: Configure the End Devices and Verify Connectivity
Step 1: Configure the PC.
You will configure the PC for the wired network in this step.
