What you'll learn
  • Once you finish my course, you will have a strong grasp on the concepts of which routing method to use in different networking environments. You will be able to configure any of the routing methods discussed and tweak each protocols attributes to make routing more efficient. You will learn how combine the two methods of routing to create backup routes if needed. You will also gain the knowledge on how to do administrative task on the router.
  • The understanding of routing is an essential element for any Networking and/or IT Professional. This course will prepare the student for any networking certification such as N+, CCNA, MCSE to include any Computer Science Degree.
  • Routing is an essential part of any network in order to communicate and transmit information. Mastering this knowledge will make the student, the Networking and/or IT Professional a much more valuable asset in any Network or IT environment.
  • A good understanding of networks.
  • The Cisco Packet Tracer or similar simulator
  • A desire to absorb the information to be able to apply it in a test environment or in a real world scenario

This course is over 10 hours in length and will cover
everything from connecting to a router, configuring administrative tasks on the
router, learning the routers internal components such as RAM, ROM, NVRAM and
FLASH; learning how to manipulate the Registers on the router, backing up
configurations, using the CDP protocol, and all aspects of Static, Default and
Dynamic routing.

Please Note: The Cisco Packet Tracer is a Cisco proprietary software and can only be given out by Cisco. So, if you hear me say in any of the lectures, that I would be providing the CPT, please disregard since I cannot do so.

DISCLAIMER:   Please note that the simulators/emulators used in this course are not part of the course. It is the students responsibility to have these to practice with. The Cisco Packet Tracer and/or VIRAL (Virtual Internet Routing Lab) are Cisco proprietary software and can only be obtained through Cisco. It is up to each student to obtain the simulator/emulator of their choice to study along with this course.

If you are unable to get a hold of the CPT, remember that you have other options, like: GNS3, Boson or even live equipment.

It is recommended that you use any of the simulators mentioned above to follow along with the course.

Students will get a thorough understanding of how the routing process actually works and they will also learn how to configure all inter-networking components using the Cisco Packet Tracer (link attached for download), look for it under external .

Students will also be configuring RIPv2, EIGRP and OSPF and understand how to manipulate each routing protocols attributes to meet the requirements of the network.

This is a lecture based course using the Touch-IT Technology Smart board, which will make learning very interactive and engaging.

Hands on labs will be used to drill down the concepts learned in each lecture using the Cisco’s Packet Tracer.

My method will make you feel like you are sitting in a classroom environment and give you the most needed hands on experience!

Handouts will be available to facilitate learning and practice.

This course is designed to help the student become comfortable with the routing concepts and router administration…but it will also help in preparing them for any networking certification or Computer Science Degree; not to mention the fact, that for those already in the field, it will further
improve routing decisions in their particular networks.

Who this course is for:
  • This course is intended for anyone that is preparing for a network certification or Computer Science Degree. However, it does go beyond that, it is also intended for those Networking and/or IT Professionals that are already in the field and need a better understanding of routing.

The RIPv2 Routing Protocol

 In this lecture, we will be configuring RIPv2 with just the basics, so we can get connectivity across the network.

Configuring RIPv2 Basics

In this lecture, we will be configuring an actual static route and advertise it using RIPv2, that way all routers know which way to go to get outside their own routing domain.

Configuring Default Information Sub-Command in RIPv2

In this lecture, we will be changing the default timers the RIPv2 uses, update, Invalid, hold down and Flush timers and why we would do that.

Tweaking the Timers in RIPv2

In this lecture, I will be explaining how to use the passive interface command and the problems it may cause.

Using the Passive-Interface Command with RIPv2

 In this lecture, we will be configuring Default Routes, Static Routes and RIPv2 and see how they can work together.

Using RIPv2 and Static Routes as Backup

 In this lecture, we will simply configure RIPng to an existing network and have a dual stack situation.

Configuring RIPng Basics
+ Dynamic Routing with EIGRP
6 lectures 01:22:11

In this lecture, we will gain an understanding of the basics of EIGRP just to get connectivity.

Understanding the Basics of EIGRP

 In this lecture, we will look at the more advanced commands for EIGRP, that would allow us to tweak EIGRP to be more efficient on our network.

Getting Deep with EIGRP

 In this lecture, we will be configuring EIGRP using the variance command to load balance across all links.

Configuring EIGRP with the Variance Command

 In this lecture, we will configure the passive interface command and see what the difference between RIPv2 and EIGRP.

Configuring the Passive-Interface with EIGRP

In this lecture, we will see how we can change the default number of paths EIGRP can travel, to its maximum value.

Configuring Maximum paths in EIGRP

In this lecture,  we will change the bandwidth on the interfaces to manipulate the path of the packet.

Changing the Bandwidth on Interfaces

5 lectures 02:09:05
This lecture will explain the difference between what a routing protocol such as Ripv2, EIGRP or OSPF and a routed protocol such as IPv4 or IPv6 is.
Preview 04:37
In this lecture we will talk about what does routing really mean and the different types of routing, Default, static or dynamic and how would you make a decision on which one to use.
What does the term Routing mean?

 In this lecture you will learn what exactly happens when information travels from one network to a different network. Show examples of routing tables and how they learned those routes.

The IP Routing Process
In this lecture we will start learning the Administrative Distances, configurations on static routes and default routes
Preview 34:57

In this lecture we will create a 3 router lab from scratch and configure basic administration on the routers, then we will configure static routes and analyze what happens to the packet as we start configuring the routes and finally will add default routes to the stub routers and see what the routing table looks like.

Static and Default Routing Part2
+ Dynamic Routing
4 lectures 01:45:05
In this lecture we will discuss the differences between RIPv2, EIGRP and OSPF. We will discuss also which routing protocol to use base on infrastructure you are working with an manufacturer of the router. We will look at the different variables that we must look at that will help us decide which routing protocol to use. 
The basics of Routing Protocols
In this lecture we will discuss how distance vector routing protocols choose to route a packet and how to avoid routing loops using Split-horizon.
Distance – Vector Routing Protocols
In this lecture I will show you how to configure RIPv2 and explain to you what exactly is happening in the routing table.
Routing Information Protocol (RIP)
In this lecture we will configure static routes using a higher administrative distance than RIP. We will also configure RIP and RIPv2 and analyze the routing tables behavior and how we would fix it so we can have full connectivity through the use of the RIPv2 routing protocol
Using Ripv2 and Static Routes Together

Introduction to OSPF
In this lab we will create the Multi-Access environment where OSPF creates an election, and we will manipulate that election through the use of Loop back addresses, and Priority numbers analyzing as we go through each step.
