The 2851 has 2 built-in Ethernet ports. It has additional slots for network modules and there are Ethernet modules available. To get to 16 routed Ethernet ports I believe that you would have to go with the EtherSwitch module and set up multiple VLANs and do inter-vlan routing.

Sandeep,

16 port Etherswitch NM can acts as both Layer 2 or Layer 3 interface. By default, it will be layer 2 interface and so you need to configure "no switchport" in interface config mode.

If you are looking for using all the 16 ports in etherswitch NM as router port, it would be a bad design.

HTH,

Nagendra
