RouterGod Celebrity Interview Series

Elizabeth Hurley on the Cisco 2600

RouterGod Field Reporter Erwin Chiong snagged this cool interview while installing a Cisco 2650 at a modeling agency in London, England.  Turns out you have to walk through a dressing room to get to the router in a wiring closet.  Erwin really milked this one.  Who would have guessed that it takes 3 days to configure RIP routing?  Actually Erwin spent one hour on the router and 3 days helping the Elizabeth Hurley get in and out of different outfits.  Miss Hurley was so appreciative she agreed to talk with him about the Cisco 2600 series of routers.  Let's join Erwin as he talks to Elizabeth Hurly about Cisco routers!

Erwin

Hey Liz!  How about telling us about the Cisco 2600 series routers!

Liz

Well, let's see, where to start. Very well, the 2600 series is a product aimed at branch offices.  They come with RISC processors and have 2 WAN card slots and 1 Network card slot.

Erwin

Not too shabby, 2 WIC slots.

Liz

Oh, I forgot, the 2600 WIC modules can also be used in the 1600, 1700 and 3600 routers, this way you can stock fewer WICs if you have these routers in your enterprise.

Erwin

How much memory do 2600s come with?

Liz

8 Megabytes of Flash and 32 Megabytes of RAM.

Erwin

The model numbers are kinda confusing, how do you know what the numbers mean?

Liz

First off, they all start with the number 26, so we can set that aside. If the last 2 digits are in the 50s that means a high performance CPU.  If the last number is a 1, that means it has 2 Ethernet Ports.

The 2610 is the basic model with one Ethernet port, the 2611 has 2 Ethernet Ports.

Erwin

Can you show us a product matrix?

Liz

Sure, here goes:

Erwin

Wow!  You really seem to know your stuff, have you ever thought of quitting modeling and getting into Cisco routers?

Liz

Funny you should ask!  I plan on getting my CCNA when I'm too old to model, maybe next year.

Erwin

No Way!

Liz

Way!


She's just skin and bones.  The poor dear...
