Free CCNA Lab Basic Static Routing


In this practice training lab scenario you will learn to configure and test basic static routing including default routes and summary routes.  This lab has been designed as a Packet Tracer activity but can very easily be completed with other routing and switching simulators such as GNS3, or Boston as well as with real hardware.

Learning Objectives:

  • Erase the startup configuration and reload a router to the default state.
  • Perform basic configuration tasks on a router.
  • Configure and activate Serial and Ethernet interfaces.
  • Test connectivity.
  • Gather information to discover causes for lack of connectivity between devices.
  • Configure a static route using an intermediate address.
  • Configure a static route using an exit interface.
  • Compare a static route with intermediate address to a static route with exit interface.
  • Configure a default static route.
  • Configure a summary static route.



In this lab activity, you will create a network that is similar to the one shown in the Topology Diagram.

Begin by perform the initial router configurations required for connectivity. Use the IP addresses that are provided in the Addressing Table to apply an addressing scheme to the network devices. After completing the basic configuration, test connectivity between the devices on the network. First test the connections between directly connected devices, and then test connectivity between devices that are not directly connected. Static routes must be configured on the routers for end-to-end communication to take place between the network hosts. You will configure the static routes that are needed to allow communication between the hosts. View the routing table after each static route is added to observe how the routing table has changed.

        Hi Barry,

        Thanks for getting back to me. No sure where the configs folder is located. I downloaded the Basic static routing zip file. Once I unzip file I can see the actual lab along with and jpeg diaghram. Am I doing something wrong?

    Hi Barry,

    For this lab the config files are not included in the zip file.
    Could you please include it if u can.

      Hello Kunta,
      This lab is a packet Tracer activity and the finial configuration is in the activity wizard under answer network.

      Thank You

    HI Barry,
    i have two questions to ask, first of all, is there any way to go back to the activity after entering the activity wizard? i was stuck on 98% and went there, after that i’ve lost all the work :/

    the reason i was stuck at 98% was the static route 1 on the R2, i configured the static route 1:
    ip route
    note that i’ve done the exact configuration on the other static route of R2(using next hop address) and it was working.
    so, where did i fail?

    thank you
    Ricardo Marques
