Does anyone know if it is possible to vlan the ports on a Cisco 1900. Cannot find any Vlan options in the menu system.

    Hi hotdiggetydawg,
    I think the 1900 has 10Mbps interfaces only. You can only setup trunks on 100Mbps interfaces so if it does not have any it is likly that it wont support VLAN's either.

    To access the Virtual LAN Menu, enter [V] Virtual LAN at the selection prompt on the Main Menu. The following display appears:

    Catalyst 1900 Switch Models

    Note Dash A (-A) models are switches with standard edition software. Dash EN (-EN) models are switches with standard and Enterprise Edition software.

    VLAN software only comes with the -EN model #s.

    Ok just found out that it's Standard edition. Is there a way I can upgrade to Enterprise?

    Per the site:
    Customers can order an Catalyst 1900/2820 Enterprise Edition Upgrade Kit by contacting Cisco at 408 526-4000 or, in North America, 800 553-NETS (6387).

    This is legacy equipment though. I'd recommend getting a better core switch for VLAN's and redistributing this one as a workgroup switch.

    Accepted Solution

    Agreed.  A used 29xx series switch is only around $250-450.

    Nice one! I'm just using it for a revision/test lab, thanks for the info though.
