About my Cisco 877w setup

After getting the Cisco 877w from I had to set it up.
The process was not as painless as I expected. As it is second-hand, in order to use it, I had to change its IP address and connect it to my iMac.
Its previous setup did not allow me to reset its IP address to the default ( even after using the Reset button so I had to do the following:
  • connect it to a PC using the (light blue) Cisco console cable (RJ45 to DB9)
  • get console access using HyperTerminal
  • delete its configuration
  • change the IP address
  • connect using an ethernet cable
  • set up the ADSL connection and the WiFi access
