I am connecting a 2960-24LT-L to a 3750 via a Gigabit Ethernet port. I have run the cisco-switch macro on my 2960 and I noticed it did not put the encapsulation dot1q after the switchport mode trunk command. The Gigabit Ethernet port on the 3750 that I am uplinking to, does have the encapsulation dot1q after the switchport mode trunk command. Do I need to add that to the 2960 port? Could someone help explain the meaning behind the encapsulation dot1q as well?
Also on the 2960, when you attempt to bring up web interface, it repeatidly asks for user credentials over and over. It does not state that you are entering incorrect login.
Thanks in advance.
