Can't Encapsulate ISL in configuration for VLANs

I have a 3745 router (IOS = 12.2 (13)T that is not functioning and I have a 3725 (IOS = 12.2. (8)T5) which I am configuring to replace the 3745.  When I configure a VLAN on the interface the encapsulate command returns an invalid character error. I can only guess after many retries that the problem lies with the difference in the IOS versions since the encapsulation works with the 3745.  Any help would be appreciated.

Could you please cut and paste the exact command you are trying to implement and the error associated?

I don't believe the 3725 supports ISL. Cisco phased that out of its products years ago, due to the interaction problems I caused with the nonproprietary 802.1Q encapsulation.

I would just just dot1q as there isn't much difference. If you require all frames to be tagged you can use the vlan dot1q tag native command

I found that I had the wrong feature set for ISL
