Now I'm becoming even more convinced you are working on a class assignment.

'multilayer switch' is a marketing term, and so can mean many different
things. Generally speaking, it refers to a device that does at least
basic processing (layer 2 switching) in hardware, and which has
at least *some* capabilities for examining layer 3 or higher data
(which it might do in hardware or software.) The term is not well
defined and the boundaries are blurry. For example, the Cisco C2950
is almost completely a layer 2 switch, but it does have the facility
for IGMP snooping, which touches on layer 3.
So you found your solution
