so I picked up a 2851 router to start dipping into ios test the waters a little. I think I configured it properly but clearly I must be missing something because even though all my lan devices are pulling dhcp ip addresses and can ping the dhcp interface, they can not seem to make the connection over to the wan interface and reach the outside world. here is my config and I feel like I'm missing something that should be right in front of my face but I'm just not seeing it..

yep, While I understand the other side of the coin so to speak, is that many of these units are installed in public places making them targets for theft. on the other side, buying these units from debunked companies without contact information is running a huge risk of buying a forever locked and doomed to be lost forever piece of hardware..
I just picked up 5 MR32's that I have come to find are worthless.. Live and learn, and move on to another vendor.
