3750 vlan routing issues

Unanswered Question
Feb 4th, 2007

I have 2 3750s configured in a stack with 2 vlans - vlan 1 and vlan 99. I have setup inter vlan routing which works fine. I have been trying to get a default route to the internet to work using a routed port to no avail. I have set my workstation to have a def gw of the vlan interface and can ping across the vlans, but cannot ping to the routed port.

The issue is that the routed port cannot be on the same vlan as vlan1 (which it is in production currently, ie route should be so I added a subinterface to the router ( and used a different network address on the routed port (10.61.38.x). This doesnt work as the arp tables dont seem to resolve?

Any thoughts?

I've attached the switch config

I have this problem too.

So, you can't ping from the switch ?

Can you post the output from typing

show ip int bri | ex una


show interface FastEthernet1/0/11

In order to ping out to the internet, a device needs to have NAT enabled. I'm assuming that's the function of ?

No, i cannot ping

Do you have access to the device ?

What kind of device is it ?

Based on the interface output, it seems you have a large amount of traffic transiting this interface, however the counter has never being cleared. Was this interface used for another connection before ?

device is a cisco 1841 router

yes the interface has been used before, i have not cleared the counters and due to the fact it drops a portion of the network when i enable the routed port, i have had to revert it back to a switchport.

Can you ping the routed port from the 1841 router ?

Can you post the show interface output from that router ?

Once you go into L2 mode on the switchport, are you able to have bi-directional communication ?

My config is very similar to http://www.cisco.com/en/US/tech/tk389/tk815/technologies_configuration_example09186a008015f17a.shtml

I have 2 VLANs on a 3750, VLAN1 and VLAN99. VLAN1 is and VLAN99 IP routing is enabled and a default GW on switch is

The default GW on the switch should be, but i cannot use this as its the same IP range as VLAN1. So I have setup a routed port on my switch with a new subnet, and setup a subinterface on the 1841 router of

From VLAN99 I cannot ping the router at all.

Hope that makes it clearer?

can you ping the router when you source it from the routed interface?

ping source fa 1/0/11 form enable mode

Does the router have a route back for vlan 99?
