How to connect router to switch


Oct 25, 2012
I have 2 cisco 2610 routers and one 2900 series XL switch; I'm confused on how to connect these equipment. This is for my home lab for ccna hands-on practice. Thanks
Not a lot of choice here physically. You only have a single port on each router so just plug them into a port on switch. If the switch is blank it will all be connected together. It is then up to you what you want to configure. Even though the standard says 802.1q is only supported on 100m ports or higher it does work on a 2600 series on 10m ports.... assuming you have the correct ios levels to even run 802.1q
