Routers for VLANs

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

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

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.

You can't. 1720 and 1750 won't do vlan encapsulation. You need 1721, 1751 or 1760. Read the product specs on

very carefully before you buy.
