I have a question on the ports included on the Cisco 1811. Currently cisco has a sever lack of configuration examples for this item so I have been unable to determine how exactly the ports are configured.
What I am unsure of is if FastE0 and FastE1 are considered part of the switch of not. I don't think they are as it is supposed to have an 8 port switch in it and there is also FastE2 through FastE9, however the default configuration on the router provided by cisco configures the internal ip on the Vlan 1 interface, the external ip on the FastE0 interface and nothing on FastE1 which leads me to believe that FastE1 is part of the switch and FastE0 is not?
So I guess I'm trying to determine the following:
1. Do I configure the internal address on FastE1 or the VLan 1?
2. Do I need to actually configure the VLan if the switch is intended for use simply as a dumbswitch. External internet into FastE0, FastE1 connecting to FastE2 and the other switchports connecting the PCs.
3. If I configure the internal IP on VLan 1, how do I apply an access list to filter the traffic going into the switchports FastE2-FastE9?
