When You Need Cisco Router Support
Some issues and errors are common in all brands’ routers and Cisco routers are no exception. A Cisco router user can face any sort of technical issue or error with his router one or the other time due to various reasons. Some of the common Cisco router related issues are.
Configuration error occurs when you are trying to connect your router with the incorrect configuration settings. Make sure that you have the correct and up-to-date configuration settings available with you when setting up the router.
Bad or Improper Cable Type
The improper cable issue can lead to the inability of the unit to maintain the functioning like bypass switch. To overcome such cable issues, it is very important to make sure that both the router and switch interface can communicate with each other in a bypass mode.
Port configuration is among the most common mistakes that administrators tend to make while processing the networking request. It is mostly during the configuration stage that either on router or switch or the addressing of local subnet that these issues generally occur.
For overcoming this problem, utilize switch port access 20 VLAN configuration interface command through a switch port.
If something of this sort happens, you will need to follow a standard set of instructions to get back on track. Firstly, switch off the router and also unplug the router from the external power adapter. Wait till 10 seconds before connecting the adapter and switching it ON.
Bad or Missing Routes:
Troubleshooting the problems related to network and routing or missing information from routing is an essential skill involving implementation and maintaining a routed network which makes use of a routing protocol.
Wrong Subnet Mask:
The subnet mask is required for TCP/IP to function properly. It determines if the host is on using a local subnet or any remote network. The troubleshooting for such problems is done through the use of WINIPCFG, PING and IPCONFIG utilities.
Any device encountering the problem of wrong or incorrect gateway can communicate with any host available on its own network segment but not with some or all hosts available on the remote network.
Duplicate IP Address:
The method is to troubleshoot the client to determine the root cause of duplicate error occurrence. In order to complete this process, analyze the behavior of IP device and tracking probe by using command ‘IP device tracking probe interval seconds’. This can be your base to overcome this problem.
