Trunking with a 2900C XL 4MB

I have a 4MB 2900XL. According to Cisco, this type of hardware do not support trunking (not even ISL). I'm wondering if there is any special config or bypass I can do, to place this Switch is a dot1q environement.

Thanx in advance.

According to CCO, the physical chipset of 4MB 2900XL can't support VLAN trunking, there is no way to do it.

Hope this helps.

Re: Trunking with a 2900C XL 4MB

the original 2900-XL 4MB does not support dot1q/ISL.

excerpt from cco documentation:

"The original Catalyst 2900 XL with 4 MB DRAM and WS-X2914-XL and WS-X2922-XL modules do not support any QoS features. " (no packet field for dot1q/dot1p)

you should be able to create an etherchannel on this device but supporting dot1q/isl on a port is not available.
