Can you use etherchannel to connect a 3745 and a 3550?

I would like to connect a 3550 switch to a 3745 router utilizing an FastEther channel. I located documentation on how to connect a 7500 router to an Catalyst 6500 but is doesn't work with the 3550 and 3745. I can get everything configured but can not ping the other end of the channel. Anyone done this? I want the channel to be a L3 link.

Any help would be appreciated.

Etherchannel is typically a Layer2 feature.

With a router, it might be a better way to use two seperate links. It will do load balancing and failover, just like a channel.

For a channel, you would need loopback interfaces or someting like that to assign an IP address to.

Could you please upload how you configured this?

Hello,

Did you find solution?

We have the same problem (using 3745 and 4006).

Daniel
