Background

When working in Packet Tracer (a lab environment or a corporate setting), you should know how to select the appropriate cable and how to properly connect devices. This activity will examine device configurations in Packet Tracer, selecting the proper cable based on the configuration, and connecting the devices. This activity will also explore the physical view of the network in Packet Tracer.

Part 1: Connect to the Cloud

Step 1: Connect the cloud to Router0.

a. At the bottom left, click the orange lightning icon to open the available Connections.

b. Choose the correct cable to connect Router0 Fa0/0 to Cloud Eth6. Cloud is a type of switch, so use a Copper Straight-Through connection. If you attached the correct cable, the link lights on the cable turn green.

Step 2: Connect the cloud to Cable Modem.

If you attached the correct cable, the link lights on the cable turn green.

Part 2: Connect Router0

Step 1: Connect Router0 to Router1.

Step 2: Connect Router0 to netacad.pka.

Choose the correct cable to connect Router0 Fa0/1 to netacad.pka Fa0. Routers and computers traditionally use the same wires to transmit (1 and 2) and receive (3 and 6). The correct cable to choose consists of these crossed wires. Although many NICs can now autosense which pair is used to transmit and receive, Router0 and netacad.pka do not have autosensing NICs.

If you attached the correct cable, the link lights on the cable turn green.

Step 3: Connect Router0 to the Configuration Terminal.

Choose the correct cable to connect Router0 Console to Configuration Terminal RS232. This cable does not provide network access to Configuration Terminal, but allows you to configure Router0 through its terminal.

If you attached the correct cable, the link lights on the cable turn black.

Part 3: Connect Remaining Devices

Step 1: Connect Router1 to Switch.

Choose the correct cable to connect Modem Port1 to Wireless Router Internet port.

If you attached the correct cable, the link lights on the cable will turn green.

Step 3: Connect Wireless Router to Family PC.

If you attached the correct cable, the link lights on the cable turn green.

Part 4: Verify Connections

Step 1: Test the connection from Family PC to netacad.pka.

a. Open the Family PC command prompt and ping netacad.pka.

b. Open the Web Browser and the web address http://netacad.pka.

Step 2: Ping the Switch from Home PC.

b. Click Back to return to Home City.

Step 3: Examine the Secondary Network.

a. Click the Secondary Network icon. Hold the mouse pointer over the various cables. Why are there two orange cables connected to each device?

b. Click Back to return to Home City.

Step 4: Examine the Home Network.
