I have seven (7) routers connected in a lab via the serial interface (DCE and DTE) on each. The final router (we'll call it Router 1) in the "chain" if you will, is connected via Ethernet to a switch. I have a server connected to that switch and PCs connected to the same switch as well as a cable modem. Running RIP on all routers. Router 7 can see all routers including Router 1. My server can see Router 1 but not Router 2 through Router 7. I know this has got to be something simple but I don't understand why. No default gateway is configured on the PCs. The switch is basically acting like a hub. I can ping Router 1, but not any other router from the PC, yet I can ping all other Routers once I console to Router 1? Any ideas?
All PCs, server and Router1 Ethernet port are in same subnet. Once you configure Router1 Ethernet port as the default gateway on all PCs and server you would be good to go.
