MedGroup Packet Tracer Skills Integration Challenge: Part 2—Build the Urban Clinic LAN Prototype
Objectives Complete the VLAN assignments and addressing scheme. Configure IP addressing on all wired LAN devices. Configure trunking. Configure VLANs. Background and Preparation Read this entire document before carrying out any configuration tasks. Be sure to save your Packet Tracer file with a new name (Part2) as soon as you start so you can always go back to a starting point. After finishing your diagram for MedGroup’s new topology, you had a meeting with the project manager to review your work. Pleased with your progress as the project lead, she asked you to build a prototype of the LAN. Your task is to design the VLAN assignments and addressing scheme, configure the LAN devices, and test full connectivity within the LAN. Routing to the Internet and the rural clinic will be implemented in Part 4. To complete the activity, you must use the Packet Tracer file you completed in Part 1.

Step 1: Complete the VLAN assignments and addressing scheme. a. Your project manager provided you with the following requirements: Create six VLANs for the following:       Unused ports (VLAN 3) Management and native VLAN (VLAN 7) Server farm (VLAN 10) Staff wired devices (VLAN 50) Staff wireless devices (VLAN 100) Guest wireless devices LAN 200)

Create six - /24 networks from the 192.168.X.0/16 address space for these VLANs Match the third octet in the network address to the VLAN number that you created. For example, VLAN 1 will use as the network address, because the third octet value matches the VLAN number, which is 1. b. Considering the above requirements, complete the following table by providing an appropriate VLAN Name and the Network Address of each VLAN.

VLAN Number 3




Network Address


Assigned to all unused ports



Assigned as native to trunk ports Fa0/12 – Fa0/20 Fa0/1 – Fa0/10 Fa0/1 – Fa0/10 Fa0/11 Fa0/11

10 50 100 200

Step 2: Configure IP addressing on all wired LAN devices. You will not be working on the rural clinic devices during this part of the case study. a. All Cisco IOS devices may already be configured with hostnames, banners, and passwords. The user password is cisco, and the enable password is class. b. Configure UC-GATE with the five IP addresses needed to provide inter-VLAN routing. Sub-interfaces must match the VLAN number. For example, create sub-interface Fa0/1.7 for VLAN 7. The link between the router and the switch needs to be a trunk so that traffic can be routed between the VLANs. A trunk is a line that can carry packets from several networks (VLANs) at the same time. Sub-interfaces can’t be configured from the Config tab so, we need the CLI. Log into privilege mode on UC-GATE, UC-Gate#, then: Config t Interface fa0/1.7 encapsulation dot1q 7 native (use the keyword native only on this .7 interface) IP address no shut … Repeat those 4 commands for VLANs 10, 50, 100, 200 (from your table above) Put the appropriate VLAN number where the 7 is in the first command. Use .1 in the last octet of the address, as is the Cisco practice to use the first available address for router ports. Remember that, further down the line, these IP addresses you are entering are the default-gateways for the PCs that join these VLANs. c. Configure UC-GATE to use for DNS. IP name server (Not sure yet why they want this on the router) d. Configure the six wired LAN devices (servers, PCs, and printer) with appropriate IP addressing. The 6 wired devices belong to either VLAN 10, 50, 100, or 200. Use the table above to pick an address for each device, depending upon its VLAN membership. All subnet masks are The appropriate defaultgateway would be those sub-interface ports on the router for that VLAN. Use for the DNS address. Back in Part 1, there was no indication as far as what port on the switches to plug the PCs and APs into. However, we now have the table from part B to contend with. So, you will most likely have to move the cables from the end devices to a switch port that will be assigned the VLANs in Table C. For instance, the EHR server will be one of the members of the Server Farm VLAN, which is VLAN 10. According to the table, VLAN 10 will be assigned to ports 12-20 on switch UC-ASw-1. So, delete the line if you have to, and run a new one from the EHR server to a port 12-20 on UC-ASw-1. If you move the device around in Packet Tracer you can get a better view of what port it is connected to. One of the APs is in the Staff Wireless VLAN and the other is Guest Wireless VLAN. You will put addresses on these in Part 3. The APs plug into port 11.

Step 4: Configure trunking. a. Configure trunking on the appropriate ports. The trunk between UC-GATE AND UC-ASW-1 has been configured on the router side, now it needs to be marked as a trunk on the switch side. Also, the 2 lines between the switches need to be configured as trunks on both ends. The appropriate switchports can easily be configured as trunks on the Config tab of the device. Use the CLI if you prefer.

Step 5: Configure VLANs on the Urban Clinic switches. Use the VLAN table in Step 1b to complete the following configurations. a. Create the 6 VLANs on each Urban Clinic switch You can use the CLI, or use the Config tab again with Switch, VLAN Database b. Assign the appropriate switchports to those VLANs just created. The table from step 1b has all the information. Pay attention to what switch has what VLANs assigned to what ports. This can also be done on the Config tab. Select an interface on the left and assign a VLAN from the drop-down. Or from the CLI…

Verify that the six wired devices in the Urban Clinic can ping their own default gateway and then each other. Using Save As…save your Packet Tracer file using Part2 in the name. Upload.
