Setup and configuration for Cisco RV320 and RV325 routers
Initial Login/Password Change:
Once the router has been plugged in and turned on, connect your Laptop/PC to the router and open an internet browser. Then type 192.168.1.254 into the browser to access the Cisco web interface.
Enter the username and password and then click ‘Login’.
The default login details for the router are:
- Username: cisco
- Password: cisco
The first time you log in, you will be required to change your password. Enter your new password of choice, un-tick ‘Minimum Password Complexity’ and then click ‘Save’.
This will then take you back to the main log in screen. Enter the username and new password and then click ‘Login’.
On the menu to the left, click on ‘System Management’, and then click on ‘Bandwidth Management’.
In the Max Bandwidth table, modify the Upstream and Downstream values for WAN1 and WAN2 to match your broadband speeds. (e.g. a 40Mb/2Mb connection you would set the Upstream to 2000 and Downstream to 40000.)
Next click on ‘Service Management’ on the bottom table.
Click on the ‘Add’ button and add the following entries and then click ‘Save’.
- UDP UDP 5060 6000
- RTP UDP 10000 65335
Next, change the Bandwidth Management Type to ‘Priority’.
Then click the ‘Add’ button on the table and create the following 4 entries:
- WAN 1, WAN2 UDP Downstream High
- WAN 1, WAN2 UDP Upstream High
- WAN 1, WAN2 RTP Downstream High
- WAN 1, WAN2 RTP Upstream High
Configuring a Broadband Connection:
On the menu to the left, click on ‘Setup’ and then scroll down to ‘WAN Setting Table’.
Select ‘WAN1’ and then click the ‘Edit’ button
For the ‘WAN Connection Type’ select PPPoE from the drop-down box.
Then complete the following steps:
- Enter your broadband Username and Password.
- Set the Service Name (This can be anything as it is just a label for the connection).
- Set the Connection Timers to ‘Keep Alive’ with a redial period of 30 secs.
- Set the MTU to Manual 1492.
Then click the ‘Save’ button.
Your Cisco router has now been set up correctly. In order to check your broadband connection is set up correctly, on the menu to the left click on ‘System Summary’ and then scroll down to ‘IPv4’ and check that WAN1 has an IP Address set.
If the IP Address is still 0.0.0.0 then click the ‘Connect’ button just below. If this still does not give an IP Address then repeat Step 4 to set up the connection again.
On the menu to the left, click on ‘Firewall’. Then make the following changes to the tick boxes in the top section:
- Untick – SPI (Stateful Packet Inspection)
- Untick – Block WAN Request
- Tick – Remote Management
