I need to set up various groups of ports into vlans on the Cisco 2948G L3 switch router that I have.  I need someone to hive me details since this is different than the normal L2 switches I am used to.

    Using the link provided you should be able to do most it right away. If you are used to layer 2 cisco switches the syntax is the same.
    First be sure to draw a picture of what you want to accomplish. Then write the config.

    This shows me how to configure sub interfaces.  I basically just want to configure groups of interfaces into 3 seperate vlans to segment them from each other.  Can some one please show me a sample config on how to accomplish this?

    I want ports 1-16 in VLAN 1
    Ports 29-42 in VLAN 2
    and Ports 43-48 in VLAN 3

    In layer 2 switches, I could simply create the vlan then go into each interface and use the switchport access command to add the interface to the vlan.  Is there something similar for this switch?
