2900xl with 4 vlans

Discussion in 'Cisco' started by gene martinez, Nov 2, 2004.

  1. I have a old 2900xl 24 port switch. I set it up with (4) vlans for
    different networks and testing. Can I connect (2) vlans together so
    they look as (1)?? I want/need to change the ip addres of the switch
    (vlan1) but all of the pc's are on vlan3. Can I jumper a port on vlan
    (1) to a port on vlan3 using a cross-over cable and have the pc's on
    vlan 3 be able to see the switch on vlan1???

  2. No, to cross subnets you'll need to route.

    I suppose you could cross-connect the vlans this way. You'll need to
    disable spanning-tree on those ports or the switch will see the loop.

  5. You could cross connect the vlans but one subnet will not talk to the other.

  6. It will? I didn't think it would as they are different vlans, so I
    thought to the switch it wouldn't see it as (2) ports are connected

  7. Thanks, I guess I should change all the ports to vlan (1) and not have
    to be bothered with connecting the (2) vlans together...

  8. What would be a low-end (2 or 3) port router?? Waybe this is something
    I should look into. Plus it would be a good learning tool.. :)

  9. The 2514 is an older 2 ethernet port router that works well and is fairly
    cheap. I used one for years in my home lab before I upgraded to a 2621 which
    would be another option for you.
