Unlikely you need it.  Same interface fast switching applies to where the ingress and egress interface are one and the same.

Yes in your case Fa0/0 connecting to Cable modem and Fa0/1 connecting to LAN are definitely not same ingress and egress. Where it might come in handy is if you were doing router on a stick where traffic from a client would come in Fa0/1 and then be forwarded back out Fa0/1 to get to the destination then you would benefit from fast switching same interface.

Hi JosephDoherty,

Thanks for reply.

So in my  case fa0/0 connects to the Cable modem and interface fa0/1 connects to LAN.

So this shows  my ingress and egress interfaces are not same right??
