A lack of ethernet modules from Cisco

    Back in the old days of the 2600 and 3600 routers, one could buy 1, 2
    or 4 port ethernet modules with true routing capability. The latest
    routers from Cisco dont seem to support this kind of function. I have
    an 1841 which comes with two 10/100 ports on board. I want to add two
    more ethernet ports to make it a full 4 port router. But i cant find a
    suitable module. Cisco do a 4 port etherswitch HWIC. But this isnt
    layer 3 capable. Any suggestions?

    I use a 2811 with a 16 port etherswitch module (NM-16ESW).
    All 16 ports support 'routed mode', i.e. operating in L3. A caveat is that
    you can't create subinterfaces on these ports. Otherwise in all other
    aspects, they're the same as normal router interfaces.

    HTH.
