I have a 3560G connected to a few linksys srw2024 and I am receiving a large amount of ovverun errors on the linksys sides of the connection. Do I need to rate limit or somehow throttle the bandwidth on the cisco side?

By default, all layer 2 ports are in dynamic desirable mode, so the layer 2 port tries to form a trunk link and sends out DTP packets to the remote device. When a layer 3 interface is connected to a layer 2 switchport, it is not able to interpret these frames, which results in Input errors, WrongEncap errors, and Input queue drops.

In order to resolve this, change the mode of the switch port to static access or trunk as per your requirement.

Switch2(config)#int fa1/0/12

Switch2(config-if)#switchport mode access
