They should both support 802.1Q and ISL


For example, 2912XL-EN port FastEthernet0/12 is connected to 2501 port FastEthernet0. Try the following commands


For 802.1Q

1. 2501 Router

!

interface fastethernet0

no ip address

full-duplex

speed 100

!

interface fastethernet0.1

encapsulation 802.1Q

ip address 192.16.0.1 255.255.255.0

2. 2912XL-EN Switch

!

interface fastethernet0/12

switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q

switchport mode trunk

full-duplex

speed 100


For ISL

1. 2501 Router

!

interface fastethernet0

no ip address

full-duplex

speed 100

!

interface fastethernet0.1

encapsulation ISL

ip address 192.16.0.1 255.255.255.0

2. 2912XL-EN Switch

!

interface fastethernet0/12

switchport trunk encapsulation isl

switchport mode trunk

full-duplex

speed 100

it is recommended to use 100Mbps FastEthernet for the InterVlan Routing...

and most probably 2501 router is not supporting the Intervlan routing... not sure... just check...

fire the following commands:

router#conf t

#interface ethernet 0

#encapsulation ?


if you find any dot1q or ISL option then that router is supporting intervlan routing... if you dont find any option like dot1q and ISL then you can not configure the Intervlan routing...

The chip set used in the 2500 series routers (a very old part of the product line) do not support any kind of trunking.
