Quick question I need a dumb switch to plug into my internet providers router.
Going to run that switch in a conference room so outside folks can reach the internet. I have a 2900 series switch and want to turn that into a dumb switch. Is all that is needed is to wipe the config by doing write erase and that is it?
In addition to erasing the running and saved IOS script, you may also want to erase the vlan.dat file in NVRAM. The commmand for that is "delete flash:vlan.dat". After both this and the "write erase" commands, you should perform a "reload".
See the detailed technote covering just this procedure at: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps607/products_tech_note09186a00800c4546.shtml#reset_switch
