2 Overview
This document describes the steps for installing the Cisco 1811 and the Cisco 1812 integrated services routers. The Cisco 1811
and Cisco 1812 routers are fixed-configuration routers. They each include an integrated 8-port 10/100-Mbps Ethernet switch,
two onboard Fast Ethernet WAN ports, two dual USB 2.0 ports, and optional 802.11a/b/g wireless LAN support. The switch
ports and the onboard 10/100-Mbps Ethernet ports support 802.1Q virtual LAN (VLAN) encapsulation and enable you to
configure demilitarized zones (DMZs), using VLANs and Cisco IOS firewall features. The switch ports are also optionally
upgradable to include inline power support for IP phones.
The Cisco 1811 and Cisco 1812 integrated services routers provide secure Internet connectivity and dial backup if your primary
connection fails. The Cisco 1811 router provides dial backup through a V.92 analog modem port. The Cisco 1812 router
provides dial backup through an ISDN S/T port.
Additional documentation can be found on Cisco.com.
Product Serial Number Location
The serial number label for the Cisco 1811 and Cisco 1812 routers is located on the back of the chassis, above and to the right
of the power switch. You need this serial number when calling Cisco for support. To see specifically where the serial label is on
your router, go to the following link:

Follow these steps to connect the router to the power supply, your local network, and your service provider network:
Step 1
Connect power to the router as shown in Figure 2:
a. Connect the separate power cord to the power socket on the back panel of the router.
b. Connect the other end of the separate power cord to a power outlet.
Note
If you have a router with the PoE option, you must connect the PoE power supply to the PoE socket on the
back of the router, connect the female end of the PoE power cable to the PoE power supply, and connect the
male end of the PoE power cable to a power outlet.
c. Turn on the router by pressing the power switch to the on ( | ) position.
d. Confirm that the router has power by checking that the SYS OK LED on the front panel is on.
Step 2
To connect the router to your network, connect one end of an Ethernet cable (RJ-45) to an Ethernet switch port
(FE 2–FE 9), and connect the other end of the cable to a port on a hub or switch, as shown in Figure 2.
Note
The example in Figure 2 shows connectivity to a hub. The router Ethernet switch ports can be connected to
another networked device, such as a switch or computer with a network interface card (NIC). If you are
connecting a computer to the switch port on the router, it will take about 30 seconds for connectivity to be
established.

Step 3
Caution
Step 4
Caution
Step 5
To use Cisco Router and Security Device Manager (SDM) to configure your router, you must connect a PC to the first
Ethernet switch port. Connect one end of an Ethernet cable to one of the Ethernet switch ports (FE 2–FE 9), and connect
the other end to the Ethernet port on your PC.
Always connect the Ethernet cable to an Ethernet port on the router. Accidentally connecting the cable to the wrong
port can damage your router.
To connect the router to your service provider network, connect one end of an Ethernet cable to a 10/100 Fast Ethernet
port (these ports are labeled FE 0 and FE 1); connect the other end of the cable to a network port on your service
provider’s broadband (xDSL or cable) modem equipment, as shown in Figure 2.
Always connect the Ethernet cable to an Ethernet port on the router. Accidentally connecting the cable to the wrong
port can damage your router.
(Optional) The Cisco 1811 router supports a 230-kbps dialup connection to your service provider network through its
V.92 modem port. The Cisco 1812 router supports a 144-kbps dialup connection to your service provider network
through its ISDN S/T port. These connections can serve as a backup to your service provider if your primary connection
goes down. To make a backup connection to your service provider network, connect one end of a straight-through
RJ-11 cable to the V.92 modem port (for the Cisco 1811) or a straight-through RJ45 cable to the ISDN S/T port (for
the Cisco 1812) on the router, as shown in Figure 2, and connect the other end of the cable to your telephone wall jack.
Note
To configure your router for a backup dialup connection, you must use the Cisco IOS command-line
interface (CLI). For more information, see the Cisco 1800 Series Integrated Services Routers (Fixed) Software
Configuration Guide.
5 Connecting Antennas to the Router RP-TNC Connectors
If your router has the wireless LAN option, connect the antennas by screwing the antenna connectors in a clockwise direction
onto the reverse-polarity threaded Neill-Concelman (RP-TNC) connectors on the back panel of the router. Figure 3 shows an
example of how to connect the swivel-mount dipole antennas to the router.
Note
6
The location and position of your router antennas are crucial to effective wireless connectivity. For more information
about the antennas compatible with the Cisco 1801, Cisco 1802, and Cisco 1803 routers, see the online documents
located at the following URL:

6 Configuring the Router Using Cisco Router and Security Device Manager
Cisco Router and Security Device Manager (SDM) is a web-based configuration tool that allows you to configure LAN and
WAN interfaces, routing, Network Address Translation (NAT), firewalls, VPNs, and other features on your router. If SDM is
installed on your router, configure the router by following the instructions in the Cisco Router and Security Device Manager
(SDM) Quick Start Guide. If this document was not shipped with your router, you can obtain the SDM software and instructions
for installing it on your router from the following location:
http://www.cisco.com/pcgi-bin/tablebuild.pl/sdm
To obtain the SDM release notes and other SDM documentation, go to the following URL and click the Technical
Documentation link.
http://www.cisco.com/go/sdm
7 Connecting a PC to the Router Console Port
This step is optional; it is required only if you want to use the Cisco IOS CLI instead of SDM to configure or troubleshoot the
router. To use Cisco IOS, you must connect the router to a terminal or to a PC with terminal emulation software. Terminal
emulation software should be configured with the following settings:
• 9600 baud
• 8 data bits
• No parity bits
• 1 stop bit
The Cisco 1800 Series Integrated Services Routers (Fixed) Software Configuration Guide describes how to configure the router
by using Cisco IOS software.
