Routers for VLANs

Have a question or want to start a discussion? Post it! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
I want to setup vlan routing for a test lab at home and found that none of
the routers I have at the moment support encapsulation on the Ethernet port.
I suspect this is because they are Ethernet and not fast Ethernet?

Anyone out there who can make a suggestion to which router would be best but
I`m not after the all singing all dancing variety as I`m on a tight budget

Thanks

Gordon

port.
but
Get a 2610. I forgot which IOS release it started but you can do dot1q encap
on the 10mbit port.



Re: Routers for VLANs
are you sure i've read in several places you need 100mb and atleast a
2620...i have a 2610 now that does not do isl or dot1q encap. if you can
check on the IOS version that will allow it let me know please!

It has nothing to do with the speed of the interface. Get af 1721 or better
(1720 will not work) in order to do 802.1q.

Re: Routers for VLANs
You can't.  1720 and 1750 won't do vlan encapsulation.  You need 1721, 1751 or
1760.  Read the product specs on www.cisco.com very carefully before you buy.

many many times.
