STP/Trunking on CE500G-12TC

Unanswered Question
Mar 7th, 2007

How do I disable 801.2Q trunking on WS-CE500G-12TC ports to other inexpensive non-Cisco unmanaged level-2 switches. My new Express 500 worked fine for a while, then said that STP blocks those ports when the communication went out. I however had configured them with disabled STP, but enabled IGMP snooping.

Thank you for any hints you?d give me.

Thank you, Amit. I've really appreciated your prompt reply. I'd guess that all my Cisco goodies (STP, Trunking, EtherChannels, etc.) are not applicable for those unmanaged Switches ?

Hi Amit,

Unmanaged level-2 switches now configured as "other role" work, but not that fast as before when configured as "switch". Do you have any further suggestions, other than buying additional models 500-24TT for the distribution layer ?
