Is this for Call manager express that you want to run at home?

connect the switch to the router in such a way that the phones (whatever vlan you put them in) can reach it, full duplex, 100?

more information as to what setup you are lookuing for

Do I need WIC-1DSU-T1 card?

I have only one Ethernet port on 2600 series router. I need to use one for the PoW switch+ ip phone and one more for the Existing LAN connection. How can I do this?

Yes, I also Look for Call MAnager Express.

Thank you,

Hi Siva,

Normally when we are building an isolated lab test setup (which i believe you are doing :) We would connect all the devices to the 3548 to simulate an actual network design. Make sense?

Hope this helps!

Can anyone let me know the issue please? Is that looking for Call manger software from the router? if so, why call manager software is not available in 2610 router.

show telephony-service is not recognised by 2610 router to check for CME software.

Thanks in advance.
