    I have a Cisco-1711 router,(the one with 5 fastethernet
    ports on it).

    I'm trying to assign an IP address to one of the ports,
    but I get an error message I'm not familiar with:


    ////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

    Router(config)#interface FastEthernet1
    Router(config-if)#ip addr 201.183.34.26 255.255.255.248

    % IP addresses may not be configured on L2 links.

    Router(config-if)#

    ////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

    What is a L2 link?

    Note: The help menu even shows I can assign the ip
    address, but it wont accept it?!?!?!

    only on FastEthernet0 you can add an IP address,
    FastEthernet 1,2,3,4 are hub ports

    On routers 1711/12 interfaces fa1 through fa4 are switchports, if you want
    them to route packets you have to associate them to vlans.
    By default those interface are associated to vlan1, so you have to assign
    the address to that vlan or create a new one (i.e vlan2) and bind the
    interface to the new vlan with the command "switchport access vlan2".
