Verify the PC Setup
Before you begin, verify that each computer that will be connected to the router has a network interface
card (NIC) installed and that Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) has been loaded
and configured. For more information on how to configure TCP/IP, refer to the PC Configuration
Instructions to Establish Cisco Router-to-PC Communications, which is available on the Cisco
Documentation CD-ROM, and refer to information available the Microsoft web site.

Connect the Cisco 800 Series Router to a PC
Follow these steps to connect the Cisco 800 series router to a PC:
Step 1
Connect the yellow Ethernet cable from the yellow Ethernet port (Cisco 801 and 802 routers) or from
the yellow Ethernet port with the number 0 (Cisco 803 and 804 routers) on the back panel of the router
to the Ethernet port on the NIC on the computer.

Caution
Verify that the HUB/NO HUB switch on the left side of the back panel has been set to the NO HUB
position (out). If the button is in, press it to set it to the out position.
The HUB/NO HUB button corresponds to the Ethernet port on Cisco 801 and 802 routers and to
Ethernet port 0 on Cisco 803 and 804 routers.
For Cisco 803 and 804 routers, connect additional computers to the Cisco 800 series router by
connecting Ethernet cables from the Ethernet ports labeled with the numbers 1, 2, and 3 to the Ethernet
ports on the computers.
Always connect the yellow cable or Ethernet cable that you supply to the yellow ports on the router.
Do not connect the cable to an ISDN S/T or U port or to a Network Termination 1 (NT1) device.
Accidently connecting the cable to the wrong port can damage your router.

Option A—Connecting Cisco 801 and Cisco 803 Routers
•
Option B—Connecting Cisco 802 and Cisco 804 Routers
Always connect the orange cable to the orange ISDN S/T port and the red cable to the red ISDN U
port on the router. Do not connect either cable to the yellow Ethernet port. Accidently connecting
these cables to the wrong port can damage your router.
Option A—Connecting Cisco 801 and Cisco 803 Routers
This section describes how to connect Cisco 801 and Cisco 803 routers outside of North America. For
information on connecting these routers in North America, see the Cisco 800 Series Routers Hardware
Installation Guide.

attach the RJ-45-to-RJ-11 adapter cable to the red cable, and then connect the RJ-11 connector to the
ISDN wall jack.
Connect Telephone, Fax Machine, or Modem
If you have a Cisco 803 or Cisco 804 router, you can connect a touch-tone telephone, fax machine, or
modem. Use the cables provided with these devices.
The gray PHONE 1 and PHONE 2 ports are RJ-11 connectors. If you are outside of North America, you
must buy and attach adapters that allow your telephones, faxes, or modems to be connected to these
RJ-11 connectors. In some countries, these adapters need additional electronics to convert the
telephones, faxes, or modems to work properly with the router phone ports. For example, in the United
Kingdom, you must buy an adapter that also provides a master socket, which causes incoming calls to
ring the connected devices. For information on recommended master sockets, see the Cisco 800 Series
Routers Hardware Installation Guide.
Caution
Do not connect the router telephone ports to the telephone wall jack. These ports are not meant for
direct connection to the public network. This connection can damage your router.
