2801 Router w/ HWIC 9ESW Switch Module

Unanswered Question
May 30th, 2007

If I install the 9ESW Switch Module in a 2801 can it become another network?

For example, I want one network on Eth1, a second network on Eth2 and third network on the switch module. I want to route between the three networks.

I have this problem too.

With appropriate configuration of VLANs I would think it was quite possible. I have not tried to do this on that platform so I can not speak from experience. But I would think it was quite possible.

Yes, you can do that. You have to create L3 SVI's on the router and then assign the respective port to each vlan. You cannot create each interface as a Layer3 interface by giving it an IP address directly.



HTH,Please rate if it does.
