I have 3 devices on subnet 0, and 3 devices on subnet 1, and route traffic between them.
However, all the inter-subnet traffic must go through an external TCP accelerator box
(that appears as a bridge, with 1 port in and 1 port out).
My current setup users 2 external switches (1 for each subnet), and the router interfaces
(FE0/0 plugs in to the subnet 0 switch, and FE0/1 plugs in to the subnet 1 switch).
There is a 9ESW HWIC installed in the 2811 router that I'd like to use,
and eliminate the external switches.
Unfortunately, I have no idea how to configure it to make this a reality.
Do I need to use VLANs to accomplish this?
Yes I'm quite new at this...
