On your switch you should either remove the trunk commands or the IP address. The port cannot be both layer 2 & 3. Since the connection from FA0 on the router is a layer 3 port I would remove the trunk commands and place the trunk somewhere else down the line. Unless I am missing something give those a try.
Hey Mark -- upon working on it I finally got it to work. What didn't make sense to me was, out of frustration, I hooked up a Linksys Wireless Router and went Eth0 to the WAN connection on the Linksys, set a 30 bit network between the two and from my switch, I could get out. Based on that, I checked my cables to see if I was using a straight through when I should have been using a X-over etc...basic, minor troubleshooting.
Still not being able to get what I needed without using the Linksys, I wiped the IOS on the Router and went down to 12.2.XX and tried each, thinking that I might have loaded an IOS that required memory which I somehow overlooked and that I didn't meet (and yet my router could get to either location).
Finally 2 days ago - on Wed, I decided to take a look at the current network topology and decided to play with just one port setting which was a direct connect to our Dist. Switch in our Data center...and it dawned on me -- We have VLANS and the configs I was using - yeah, didn't match. So all along it was a vlan setting pre set causing it. I opened that puppy up and BAM - just like that, I was back in business.
Thanks for your help...I didn't even catch the initial config problem between the layer 2/3 I initially had.
