Friend,


If you want an additional ethernet module, you can use the HWIC-1FE (the min IOS required though is 12.4(11) XJ)

HWIC-16ESW is also supported on the 2811 which gives you 16 ports and can be configured for VLAN interfaces

The 2811 also supports the NM-16ESW module

Have a look at the 2800 data sheet for the supported modules for your needs

Hi,


beside Narayn's good advice, there is no need to create use vlan database commands, just configure interface vlan X and assign the needed ports to it.


What does it mean the switchport command doesn't work? Please be more specific.

I created VLAN but interface status showing down. secondly i want to use that interface for GRE/IPSEC.

hi aziz,


Advanced security IOS i belive shudn't hinder you from entering VLAN Database.

Nevertheless, you can:

1. create a vlan using " int vlan x"

2. Assing the FE switch port using "switch port access vlan X"

3. Connect that switch port to a router

4. sh ip int brief, you can see the port is up as well the VLAN X.


Cheers!

IPSEC/GRE may have issue on HWIC port, as it have limited functionality.You may test it out.
