Does anyone know what interface FA 0/0 is. I just saw this as part of the simulation on an exam. I was supposed to configure it. Typing it in at the config prompt gave me an error. I thought it might be fast ethernet, but that didn't work either.

If you know what this is, could you tell me what to type at a router prompt to configure parameters for it.

( ex Serial 0/0 would be ROUTER ( config )# interface serial 0/0 return, then you would get the ROUTER ( config-if)#

FA is FastEthernet but I see this more in the switches. This (below) is a snap out of a 3500 Catalyst.

Router(config)#int fa 4/1


Router(config-if)#switchport access vlan 10

Might be they had the wrong HW for this for your lab. FE works in router platforms.

Hope this helps you,

FA stands for "fast ethernet" slot/port i.e oth slot, oth port or the first port in an ethernet module.

It is the same as int s0/0 except that, fa is a LAN port which connectts your LAN , and s0/0 connects to a WAN link.

hope I resolved your issue
