Looking at coverting from layer 2 to layer 3. what to consider?

Basically, I'd like to know what aspects need to be thought of.

We're doing bridging right now, but would be switching (no pun intended) over to EIGRP on our frame links (2 of them connecting to my location, which is the central site).

For instance, we run DHCP here, but have not yet implemented it at the remotes. How well does DHCP work with routing?

We use a 3640 here, and 2611s at the remote sites, and are running IP only.

Any advice on what points I need to address would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Re: Looking at coverting from layer 2 to layer 3. what to consid

It's a good idea to make the 'switch'. You'll need to consider:

Setting up separate subnets for each site.

Configuring ip-helper address to relay DHCP requests for each remote site.

Choosing and implementing a routing protocol.

That's pretty much it, since you are strictly IP. At least, that's all I can think of for now.
