Quick one on Link aggregation

Hi,

Ive got a situation where I have a router with a gigabit ethernet interface and a fast ethernet interface.

I want this router to be a router-on-a-stick so there is a trunk coming from a switch to the gig interface, the rest of my network has good redundancy and this link is kind of a SINGLE POINT OF FAILURE so I was wondering if I can aggregate FA and the GI int on a 2800 using LACP or Etherchannel (or anyhow) its not directly for the extra bandwidth its more for fault tolerence.

Thank you in advance everyone

  No you cannot etherchannel unequal speed links into a etherchannel.  If you want to do this  you would have to drop the gig link to 100 meg and try it .  It's not something I have tried on a router though .

Thanks Glen for clarification for unequal speed for etherchannel configuration.

Dan,

Agreed with Glen

For more info:

Please refer to this document for Etherchannel Guideline and Restrictions:

Configure all LAN ports in an EtherChannel to operate at the same speed and in the same duplex mode.
