I have a Cisco 2811 router with Advanced Enterprise Services, NME-16ES-1G-P, WIC-1T Serial Card, and (2x) FE ports.
I have 17 devices (servers, VoIP phone, etc.) that need to be on the same VLAN. Essentially, I just want to use the NME-16ES-1G-P module like a switch for these devices, and then interface to the WAN via the FE0/0 port. Is the GE 1 Port on the NME-16ES-1G-P configurable to be simply a 17th switchport to accomplish what I desire, or can it only be used for more advanced features like stacking or WAN interface?
I have to use the 2811, and I'd rather not install a switch in addition to the router. Thanks!
Also, if I could add an HWIC-D-9ESW card, can it be configured to be nothing more an extension of 9 more switchports on the same VLAN as the NME-16ES-1G-P ports, or must they be separate VLANs?
Sorry if these are easy questions, I'm just getting acclimated with Cisco modules in routers like a 2811. Thanks!
