IP address Assignment Exercise (16 points)
Understanding a router’s place in the network is a prerequisite to moving ahead in your studies of routing and routing protocols. You studied routers extensively in Chapter 1, “Introduction to Routing and Packet Forwarding.” The following sections review some of the basic skills you need to progress to the next step: static routing.
Refer to the topology shown in Figure 1 and document the address scheme. Use the table below to document the IP addresses for all the interfaces. Use the following guidelines, assign addresses from the indicated subnets to the interfaces on the routers and the PCs.
* Assign the first IP address for all LANs to the router interface.
* Assign HQ the first IP address for all WAN links to Branch routers.
