Hi, I have a Cisco 3620 and trying to enable ISL encap on that (VLAN communication). but it seems there is no such command available on this router. Martin told that 12.0(28c) doesnt support it, so Can I upgrade the IOS on this box and what would be the best version to go with. Thanks in advance-Rob

12.0(28c) seems to support ISL, but not with the basic IP train you have. ISL support is present in 12.0(28c) IP Plus for example, but it requires 32 Mb of DRAM and 8 Mb of Flash, so this not possible with your router configuration (only 16 Mb of DRAM and 4 Mb of Flash).

I think that the strict minimum for what you require is 24 Mb of DRAM and 8 Mb of Flash.
