Pre-Requisite Types of Routing

Static routing is a routing protocol that helps to keep your network organized and to optimize routing performance. It enables the router to assign a specific path to each network segment and to keep track of network changes. This helps to improve network stability and continuity. This adds security because a single administrator can only authorize routing to particular networks.

Steps to Configure and Verify Two Router Connections in Cisco Packet Tracer :

Step 1: First, open the cisco packet tracer desktop and select the devices given below:

S.NO Device Model Name Qty.
1. PC PC 4
2. Switch PT-Switch 2
3. Router PT-Router 2

IP Addressing Table For PCs:

S.NO Device IPv4 Address Subnet Mask Default Gateway
1. pc0
2. pc1
3. pc2
4. pc3
  • Then, create a network topology as shown below the image.
  • Use an Automatic connecting cable to connect the devices with others.

Correction: Default Gateway in 2nd network is

Step 2: Configure the PCs (hosts) with IPv4 address and Subnet Mask according to the IP addressing table given above.

  • To assign an IP address in PC0, click on PC0.
  • Then, go to desktop and then IP configuration and there you will IPv4 configuration.
  • Fill IPv4 address and subnet mask.


Step 3: Assigning IP address using the ipconfig command.

  • We can also assign an IP address with the help of a command.
  • Go to the command terminal of the PC.
  • Then, type ipconfig <IPv4 address><subnet mask><default gateway>(if needed)

Example: ipconfig


  • Repeat the same procedure with other PCs to configure them thoroughly.

Step 4: Configure router with IP address and subnet mask.

S.NO Device Interface IPv4 Addressing Subnet Mask
1. router0 FastEthernet0/0
2. router1 FastEthernet0/0
  • To assign an IP address in router0, click on router0.
  • Then, go to config and then Interfaces.
  • Then, configure the IP address in FastEthernet and serial ports according to IP addressing Table.
  • Fill IPv4 address and subnet mask.


  • Repeat the same procedure with other routers to configure them thoroughly.

Step 5: After configuring all of the devices we need to assign the routes to the routers.

To assign static routes to the particular router:

  • First, click on router0 then Go to CLI.
  • Then type the commands and IP information given below.

CLI command : ip route <network id> <subnet mask><next hop>

Static Routes for Router0 are given below:

Router(config)#ip route

Static Routes for Router1 are given below:

Router(config)#ip route

Step 6: Verifying the network by pinging the IP address of any PC. We will use the ping command to do so.

  • First, click on PC1 then Go to the command prompt
  • Then type ping <IP address of targeted node>
  • As we can see in the below image we are getting replies which means the connection is working very fine

Example : ping



We are sending PDU from  PC0 to PC2.
