Cisco 2800 to 3560g

We have a a 2800 series router and (4) 3560g series switches.
router 10.0.0.1
switches 10.0.0.251, 0.252, 0.253,0.254
We have fiber uplink daisy chained to each switch. I can not get the fiber to work.
Please help!

Also can you configure each port to be its own subnet?

Do you get link lights? Try swapping the two fibers at one end. What kind of fiber are you using? Single mode or multimode? Do you have the proper SFP module for the type fiber you are using?

If you create subinterfaces on the 2800, convert the 3560 switch-switch links to trunks, and assign the VLANs to ports, you can have each port be its own subnet.

Thanks both of you guys...that was helpful...starting to get it where we need it.  Do you know how we can setup DHCP on each port?  According to the white papers it is allowed....

DHCP is a router/server (host) function, not a switch function.

ip dh po pool1
 network x.x.x.x x.x.x.x
 def x.x.x.1
 dns x.x.x.x x.x.x.x
 dom mydomain.com

So we would set up pools on the router?  How do we get those to communicate through the switch?  For instance...

we have:

gigabitethernet0/0.1
encapsulation dot1q 1
ip address 10.0.0.65
ip nat inside

They do, if the pool aligns with a local subnet.

They just go on the router.
