Hi, just a little confusion..
when i run the comand "show ip interface brief"
i get the output ..
Router#sh ip int brief
Interface IP-Address OK? Method Status Proocol
FastEthernet0/0 188.8.131.52 YES NVRAM up down
FastEthernet0/1 192.168.4.254 YES NVRAM up up
now the funny thing is that i done have any cable connected to the interface Fe0/0
shouldnt the status be showing "down" ???
cause if i shut it don then it shows administratively shutdown.. i theres a cable connected to it then status shows up..
any help.. ?
the router is 2801 with IOS version 12.4
The fast ethernet interface will never show the interface as down after you do a no shut to the interface.
It does not rely on any carrier detects as in serial interfaces and hence displays this behavior. This is independent of the platform and not specific to 2801
HTH, rate if it does
