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.
