Connecting Two 1841 Routers together...

Greetings,

Simple question:

For educational reasons (a Videoconference class), I need to connect two 1841 router with each other. They both have HWIC-2T modules, but it's almost impossible for me to have the CAB-SS-2626X Smart Serial crossover cable on time. So, I was wondering if there will be some kind of a problem if I connect them through a UTP crossover cable using their FastEthernet interfaces.

I suppose it will not "simulate" a serial wan connection but, would it work as a router to router connection?

Do I need to configure DTE and DCE anyway?


Thanks in advance.

You can connect them via the fast ethernet interfaces without any issues. You may need an ethernet cross-over cable, I don't remember if a straight-thru will work.
