Here we are going to see how to add are remove interfaces in routers.

Step 1:Add a Generic (Router-PT) and Place a cursor on router or go to privileged mode and give this command 'show ip interface brief' to see how many interfaces we have in Generic Router-PT.By Default, we have


FastEthernet0/0        unassigned      YES unset  administratively down down

FastEthernet1/0        unassigned      YES unset  administratively down down

Serial2/0              unassigned      YES unset  administratively down down

Serial3/0              unassigned      YES unset  administratively down down

FastEthernet4/0        unassigned      YES unset  administratively down down

FastEthernet5/0        unassigned      YES unset  administratively down down









Step 2:So,In some topology our requirements will differ sometimes we need more serial interfaces sometimes we need fastethernets.To add or remove interface in this router click on router->Physical.Now maximize the window.


Step 3:First switch off the router before we going to modify interfaces.we can see a Switch right side of the router with small green light glowing on that switch just click on that to turn off.Once you click on that the green light stopped glowing.so the router turned off.




Step 4:Now,I am going remove the fastethernet4/0 and fastethernet5/0.By dragging the interface from the router to the modules.i.e. (PT-Router NM FFE),Click and drag interface to module.



Step 5:Now i am going to add fastethernet with RJ-45 jack.For that click on (PT-Router-NM-CFE) from module drag to router and place that in empty place that is Black Vertical boxes.Now,we got four more fastethernet interfaces on router with RJ-45 Jack.Now turn on the router by clicking on switch.Once you clicked on it you can see a green light glowing on a Switch.Now,place a cursor on router or give this command 'show ip interface brief' in privileged mode to see how many fastethernet interfaces we are having in router.Just add interfaces based on your requirements.

FastEthernet1/0        unassigned      YES unset  administratively down down

Serial2/0              unassigned      YES unset  administratively down down

Serial3/0              unassigned      YES unset  administratively down down

FastEthernet4/0        unassigned      YES unset  administratively down down

FastEthernet5/0        unassigned      YES unset  administratively down down

FastEthernet6/0        unassigned      YES unset  administratively down down

FastEthernet7/0        unassigned      YES unset  administratively down down




We can save this as pkz,whenever we want this we can open this customized router.And also we can copy this router by pressing control key  click on router and drag if you want more router like this.
