2801 to 2950 trunk large error bursts

Hi all,

Recently implemented a new 2801 802.1q trunk to a 2950 switch, every 3 seconds we get a burst of around 1,000 input errors on the 2801 router, but nothing shown on the interface on the switch.

We've replaced:

2801 router

Cables between the two (twice)

swapped the ports on the 2950 switch (swapping out isn't really a simple option at present)

Can anyone suggest why we might be seeing this as it seems a very standard setup, and one that we have in many other sites without problems.

2801 config:

interface FastEthernet0/1

description Switch LAN

no ip address

speed 100

full-duplex

!

interface FastEthernet0/1.1

encapsulation dot1Q 1 native

ip address 10.10.10.1 255.255.255.248

no snmp trap link-status

on the 2950:

interface FastEthernet0/1

description **UPLINK**

switchport trunk allowed vlan 1,123,126,140,142,152

switchport mode trunk

speed 100

duplex full

!

Help!!

Silly me, it helps if I show you the output of sh int fe0/1 on the 2801 router:

Re: 2801 to 2950 trunk large error bursts

On your switch port interfaces, apply the

"switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q"

Hope this help.

Re: 2801 to 2950 trunk large error bursts

Thanks for the advice, however this is a new 2950 switch, with new IOS (12.1(22)EA2) which uses dot1q as native, so doesn't need or accept this statement.

Encapsulation is definately working, as the switch/trunks are operating perfectly, just the errors.
