I need help connecting my 851 cisco router and 2950-24 catalyst switch,
I tried to setup “router on a stick” by creating a dot1q trunk port but i couldn’t.
i understand that because my 851 router has only one vlan (vlan1)
i can’t create a trunk port to the router…
i tried creating a sub-interface but the only interface i managed to create it on was fast ethernet 4 (connection to the dsl modem).
can i solve this issue?
right now i have only one vlan in my switch and the router is
connected to one of the ports…is this the only way?
i must have more then one vlan in my router?
why is sub-interface used to create the trunk?
what is the right way to connect the router and the swith in my case?
