Re: what are different Wic-1FE Vs Wic-4ESW?

I am only able to locate HWIC-1FE and HWIC-4ESW.

For HWIC-1FE, you can only configure it as L3 port. You can look at the feature portion

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/routers/ps5854/product_data_sheet0900aecd80581fe6_ps5855_Products_Data_Sheet.html

For HWIC-4ESW, you can configure L2 features.

Dear Jerry,

Thank you for your link as above.

Could you more explain, i'm not clear for Wic-1FE and Wic-4ESW?

i just to know configure that :

1-for Wic-1FE:

interface FastEthernet0/0/0

description LAN

ip address 192.168.101.9 255.255.255.0

2-For Wic-4ESW:

interface Vlan1

description LAN

ip address 192.168.1.100 255.255.255.0

interface Vlan2

description LAN

ip address 192.168.2.200 255.255.255.0

could you let me know more than this?

With the Wic-1FE you have another routed FastEthernet interface on the router. It functions just like the built in FastEthernet interfaces. (and it is not a switch port). With the 4ESW you actually have a 4 port Ethernet switch in the router. You can configure the ports as switch ports (including VLAN assignments and other switch functions) and you configure VLANs for the layer 3 interfaces.

The other obvious difference is that with Wic-1FE you have only 1 connection and with the 4ESW you have 4 connections.

Re: what are different Wic-1FE Vs Wic-4ESW?

Hi Rechard,

In the most simplest of terms, a HWIC-1FE, is like an extra router port to your router. The HWIC-4ESW is like putting a 4-port Layer 2 switch (2940/2950/2960) to your router just to increase (a little bit) the port capacity. You can purchase a PoE version of the HWIC-4ESW while you can't with a HWIC-1FE.

Hi ,

As mentioned by lolaohoo, is the HWIC-1FE has the same physical interface with WIC-1FE? I mean does both use the same connectivity cable? thanks to clarify.

Re: what are different Wic-1FE Vs Wic-4ESW?

These are used ...only when you need more ports on router.Its depend on your requirement.

WIL-1FE---------configure as as L3

WIC-4ESW------configure as L2

You can use same cable.

HWIC-4ESW. It acts like a layer3 switch. You just configure ip addresses on the vlan interface. You can now use the physical port on the switch to be second outside.

HWIC-1FE/2FE is what we call Layer3 interface(routed interface).

Regards

Please rate if it helps.

I do not believe WIC-1FE is supported on a 1760 router.

If you want to limit the speed to a particular port, then you just do PBR.

yor're right WIC-1FE ins not supported.

I Have Cisco 1760, WIC-1ADSL and 1 WIC slot available,

Bandwidch limit only is possible in router and L3 Switch.

I don't know if WIC-4ESW support PBR because is like a L2 switch. WIC-1ENET is L3 but only one RJ-45

If you want to limit the bandwidth to a particular user, here's a nasty way of doing things ...

Put the specific user in a specifc VLAN, of course you do inter-VLAN routing but with a 1760 router, you should be able to do this.

Apply the PBR on that specific VLAN.
