Can a NetVanta 3305's two lan ports be set-up as a switch?

I have a carrier installed and managed NetVanta 3305.  I have dual T-1s bonded with this device.  I want to have the two lan ports setup as a switch.  I want to be able to feed two firewalls setup in a High Availability scenario with seperate ethernet connections, but with same IP/DNS etc.  My carrier is telling me that this is not possible and I have to use unique settings.  I can put a switch in after the Adtran, but I don't want to if not needed.  Please help!!!

Hi,
this is, as far as I know, not possible. The 3305 has only its two onboard LAN interfaces, which are not configurable as switch ports.
Only the Multiservice Access Routers 3448 and 1335 have switch ports.

I forgot, besides the 3448 and 1335, there are of course the 3120, 3130 and the 344
which do have switch ports

Will any of these be able to support multiple T1s and bond them?

I think, only  the 3448 and the 1335 will, and only with a bandwith of two T1s, not three as the 3305.
