Hi All,

I'm trying to configure vlans in Cisco 3825 using HWIC-4ESW module. The router shows the module is installed properly and I configured the VLAN too. but the line protocol of the FE and Vlan both shows down and no traffic on the VLANs. I changed the physical slot of the module, reconfigured VLANs, but no use. I tried to connect to switch and PC Directly but still the same (No Ping and No traffic).

The config is as follows,

3825#sh run
!
!

end

and the sh ip route , vlan-switch and interface are as follows:

3825#sh ip route

Just found this:

 Note: Both HWICs-the 4- and 9-port HWICs-support up to 15 VLANs.

They don't say if the VLANs have to be 1-15 or 1-64, etc.

And you have something plugged in to f0/0/0 and f0/0/3? With a known good cable?

The config and other output looks fine.

Hi,

Yes currently f0/0/0 is connected to a computer directly. Any more changes needed???

The only other thing I can think of would be a speed or duplex mismatch.

Hi,

Thanks a lot for the support. After changing the VLAN 101 to VLAN 2, it needed a reboot of the router. After that it starts working.

Interesting that you had to reboot for it to take effect. Good to know.
