Hi all. I've got a Cisco 877 to replace our old shoddy ADSL router.
I want to connect it to our internal network so the PC's and server can use it as the Internet gateway.
Now obviously i'll need to configure an IP address for them to look at, but when I try to conigure an IP address on E0, I get the 'go away, you can give a switchport and IP address fool' message...
I can rememeber something about needing to create a VLAN, give it an IP address and assign the switch port to that VLAN, but, alas, I cant remember how to do it.
Can someone help?
If you use VLAN 1 as your interface VLAN, then you shouldn't have to do anything special to the access port. It should by default be a member of VLAN 1.
Make sure the port is a member of VLAN 1 by using 'switchport access vlan 1'
