    Is it possible to add an extra ethernet port to a 2610 router? If so which
    slot would it go in?

    Sorry, never had any luck using the cisco website product selector thingies
    to find this sort of thing out - is it just me or is the site difficult to

  2. You'd get an NM-1E (for 1 10Mbps port) and put it in the NM slot
    (ie. the one thats to the left of the box looking at it from the rear).

    Make sure not to get an NM-1FExxx as no FastEthernet ports are
    supported in the NM slots on the 26xx series routers. (no XM or XM).
    Yeah, its not the easiest thing to use, but just think of how many
    parts that Cisco has.. Just takes some experience to go through their
    product catalog and find what you need, especially with older gear.
