I just purchased a Cisco 881 router for my business. I understand a little IOS but i'm having a little problem setting up the router to match the current router (dinky netgear personal router).

My plan is to first match the functionality of the current router:

  • dhcp
  • static outside ip
  • port forwarding

...and then add additional functionality after it is in place:

  • wpa wifi
  • vpn
  • Qos for my 3 ip phones

If anyone has a good site or any words of wisdom I would greatly appreciate it.

Wow. Not sure who gave you the downvote, but I agree with you fully. +1 – ThatGraemeGuy Oct 14 '09 at 11:56
+1 I've previously used the CISCO web site to answer my questions - it did take a bit of digging, but it was free! (I don't understand the downvote either.) – Umber Ferrule Oct 21 '09 at 12:31

A colleague of mine ended up buying the Cisco IOS Cookbook to get our Cisco hardware up and running.
