Switchport module within 1800 VPN router

Hi Folks,

I have a Cisco 1801 VPN router (using PPPoA) which I currently have one PC attached to the Fe0 port which in turn picks up a DHCP address from the local pool within the router.

I am now planning to add a few more PC?s to the site and I was looking to use the extra 8 switchports available on the router.

Up until now I have been using a 2950 switch and hanging it off the Fe0 port so that I can also extend the subnet.

When I try to plug a PC into the extra switchports no DHCP address is obtained. From what I can tell I will have to create a VLAN on the router to assign the switchports too. However when I do this I am unable to extend the subnet from the Fe0 port onto the switch module as I receive a ?Subnet already in use? message from the CLI.

Thanks for your help

I think your are connecting to the wrong switch.
