Unanswered Question
Jul 14th, 2007


i am using 4 ports HWIC in 2811 router for LAN interface. All ports are layer 2 ports unable to assign ip address. I am using advance security IOS 12.4(5)trying to create vlan. but unable to enter vlan in data base, when trying to map one of port of HWIC to that port its giving error vlan not in database...i am unable to find any command for this supported in this IOS.

i want to use thses ports as layer-III ports. Any idea? I'll appriciate your response.

I have this problem too.

They cannot be used as a routed port per se but the port should still be routable, just create a layer 3 SVI for the vlan and then put the interface into that vlan .

router#vlan database -->hit enter

vlan 10


interface vlan 10

ip address

interface f4/0

switchport access vlan 10
