1811w trunking to either an HP Procurve or Nortel Baystack

Unanswered Question
Jun 16th, 2010

I have an 1811w that is doing my edge.  It has an 8 port switch embedded in it.  It is doing some interior routing (one vlan, several IP subnets) using one of these interfaces.  I want to increase bandwidth to this routing engine from the 100mb it has right now.

I have two options with the equipment I have.

1) Setup several of the 1811w's ports to trunk up to a Nortel Baystack 470

2) Setup several of the 1811w's ports to trunk up to a HP Procurve 2510

Does anyone have a sample config or some hints as to the best way to approach this problem without buying extra hardware?   I do plan on upgrading our core switches to Cisco products down the road.  At this time, I will be doing the interior routing on the core, and use the edge router for just internet routing.  This is down the road, and I need to "band aid" the problem before we go that route.

Thanks

Mike

I have this problem too.

Edison:

You mean there is no way I can increase bandwidth to that machine?

As Edison says, not with that router. To get that sort of throughput you either need to spend a lot of money on a router or more realistically look into a L3 switch.

Ok, that's unfortunate.  I guess this speeds up our plans to go to a new switching platform!
