All cisco switches are store and forward only with the exception of the old cat 1924 series which had th option of being cut thru I believe.

Hi

Thanks for your reply,

how would a 1924 switch running cut-through be be able to determine,when receiving a frame on a trunk port be to to read the 802.1q vlan id, since a cut through enabled switch only reads the dest. mac address and then it will forward the frame, I just cant see how it would be able to read the VLAN-ID

cheers
