Guys ... decided to start a new thread since the old topic of "Port Speed" did not apply anymore.
Until I can replace my router, I'd like to use my Cisco WS-C3550-24-PWR switch to do routing. My upstream ISP provided me with a /23 IP block and they are using VLAN 758 tagging. They installed their own Cisco switch in my NOC -- so I'd like to connect port 24 of my switch (making it the WAN port) to their switch and use the other ports as LAN ports. My switch software version is 12.1(14)EA1a).
To recap: I'd like to use port 24 on my 3550 switch as the WAN port using VLAN 758 tagging and use the other 23 ports as LAN ports using the /23 IP block from my ISP, as well as using private IPs (172. 20.54.0/23). I'd like to do subnetting on both the private and public IPs.
Can I configure this 3550 switch to do this?
If this helps -- I can enter "IP Routing" in Conft Term mode.
Any docs to reference would be greatly appreciated!
Can this switch handle a 30Mbps upstream connection (WAN port)?
