Hi all

I can see the topic has been brought up below,  however i do not find any
conclusions in the discussion:

Studying for my CCNA, i would very much like being able to make a "Router on
a stick" for the purpose of routing between Vlans.
I have searched the IOS download at to the point of getting
insane, but i can not seem to find any version that fits my 2611 with 8 mb
flash and 32 mb ram.

Can 802.1q trunking be done on this config? If so - what (downloadable) IOS
should i use?

My current (and not trunk-able) config is below:

I would really apreciate any help!

Best rgds

I recall something about a C2650XM being the minimum model capable of dot1q
trunking (it was either that or some other critical feature in modern
environment). So you're highly likely to be ---- out of luck mate
