1841 HWIC 4ESW

Hi I have 1841 with HWIC 4esw.

I would like to connect to the LAN PC client x6 and would use the all 1841 fast Ethernet port as one switch port.

(FE0/0 / FE0/1 / FE0/0/1 / FE0/0/2 / FE0/0/3 )

could you advise?

Not sure what the question is , you want 6 pc's but only have 5 ports . You would have to hooked a switch off one of the hwic ports to get additional ports . If i missed your question please clarify what you are trying to do .

Re: 1841 HWIC 4ESW

Yes I only write the 5 physical port.

(FE0/0 / FE0/1 / FE0/0/1 / FE0/0/2 / FE0/0/3 )

This should be

original port: FE0/0 / FE0/1 (with 1841)

addtional ports: FE0/0/0 FE0/0/1 / FE0/0/2 / FE0/0/3 (with HWIC 4esw)

What I would like to do;

PC A: IP 192.168.0.1/24

PC B: IP 192.168.0.2/24

PC C: IP 192.168.0.3/24

Physical Connection

PC A: FE0/0

PC B: FE0/1

PC C: FE0/0/1

as PC A, B and C are able to ping each other!

did you get what I would like to do?

You should be able to easily put 4 PCs on the ports of the switch FE0/0/0, 0/0/1, 0/0/2, and 0/0/3, give the Pcs addresses in the 192.168.0 subnet, configure the VLAN interface for the switch with an address in that subnet. I think that the difficulty will be trying to configure the IP addresses on FE0/0 and Fe0/1. IOS will not allow you to configure these two layer 3 routed ports in the same subnet (and I am not sure if it is a problem to put them in the subnet with the VLAN interface.

If you really want to do this, then I would suggest that you configure Integrated Routing and Bridging (IRB) in which you configure a bridge group, put both physical interfaces into the bridge group, and configure a BVI with an addrss in that subnet.

If you do this I believe that you could get as many as 6 PCs in the same subnet.
