I have a Cisco 1841 connected to a DSL modem for its WAN link. The service provider gives us a static IP address by having us send a DHCP request and they allocate it statically based on the MAC. This is configured and working.
The service provider offers the ability to get a second static IP on this link, which I would like to access. The only way I can use it is to send a second DHCP request to the DSL modem with a second MAC address. I can obviously do this by connecting two Ethernet interfaces to a L2 switch and then connecting that switch to the DSL Modem, but I'd like to do this without the L2 switch in the middle. Is this possible?
Whaterver might be the case we need to have two interfaces to have two MAC addresses.So we need to have 2 interfaces to get the IP addresses.This couldnt done even with Non-Management switches which are far cheaper compared to ordinary switches.
