Cat 2960G can do IP routing?

Folks, I see some information on the Cisco website that 2948G switches can do Layer 3 functions.


Then I attempted to use the Cisco IOS configuration tool in order to find images for Cat 2948G and Cat 2960G, and I see no ip routing image listed for such platforms.


So my question is, can a Cat 2960G do ip routing after all?


I thought that was available only on Cat 3550/60, 3750's and beyound but I want to confirm.

2948G was a special hardware release and it can't be compared with any of the current 2900 series switches.


For more information on the 2948G, please check its documentation:

BTW, this device is EOL for a while now.


HTH,

Hi,

Cisco 2960 switch can't do "ip routing". it's a Layer2 switch.

No.


" I see some information on the Cisco website that 2948G switches can do Layer 3 functions."


Correct, in that the switch "understands" IP packets for some features. E.g. "Advanced QoS".


[edit]

Correction: misread 1st statement's 2948G to as also a 2960G. It's the 2960G that "understands" IP packets for QoS. Edison has great reference for 2948G's L3 features.
