cisco2691 and 6 LAN connections

Is this possible? Currently we have 6 remote connection coming in through our telco on one cat5 line. These all go to a switch at the telco then out to 6 sites with 2621's at them. We have 100mb links between all the locations and the central location, but obviously the 2621's can't support that speed. We use appletalk and IPX currently, but hopefully ipx will be gone by end of summer. Is it possible to setup subinterfaces on our 2691 at the central location and just apply the configs from the 6 remote locations to each sub interface and faze out the 2621's at each location and therefore would get the increase in bandwidth and speed? Thanks for any replies!

Re: cisco2691 and 6 LAN connections

I am not sure whether you are getting the 100 MBps link over Ethernet or some other type of link. If you are talking about the 2621 router, I see that it supports Fast Ethernet interface. If the connection that you get is over ethernet, I think you should be able to connect it to a 100 Mbps link. You can use sub-interfaces at the central site, but it should be able to handle all the aggregate bandwidth going to the remote sites. If you are going to send traffic at 100 Mbps to all the remote sites with a single 100 Mbps pipe at the cetral site, then the central site is overscribed. You will need more bandwidth at the central site.

Re: cisco2691 and 6 LAN connections

We have 100MB links to each site, but the 2621 can't process that type of load. We have 2 subnets here at the central location and on the same subnet we can do almost 4mb/sec transfer if we transfer between subnets it is like 500-750k/sec. The real question is can we run our configs for each location on a subinterface since they currently have appletalk and ipx on them? We want to get rid of the remote routers if possible and do a straight switched connection. Thanks for the response!
