Catalyst 2960G Switch Configuration

Is there a way to configure a Catalyst 2960G Switch to act like / be an unmanaged (no router capability) switch?  If so, please provide simple, and detailed instructions.

Hi @lcbalogh1,

I think that those switches are not routing-capable but one thing ... What you want to do is to have the whole switch in a unique broadcast domain (all ports in the same VLAN), right? If so, follow these steps:

  • Disable the routing capabilities with the "no ip routing" global configuration command 
  • If the first command is not accepted, type the "no dsm prefer lanbase-routing"

These two steps above disable the routing capabilities.

Ok, to make all ports members of the same VLAN you have some options:

  • You can let all ports in the default VLAN (VLAN 1)
  • Or, You can configure all ports in another different VLAN
    • switchport mode access
    • switchport access vlan <vlan-id>

Hope this is useful for you.
