I have used a router 3640 with NM-16ESW to emulate a switch, but I didn;t find a way to create vlans other  than the old way:

I went to:
Router# vlan database
Router(vlan)#vlan 20
VLAN 20 added:
    Name: VLAN0020
Router(vlan)#apply
APPLY completed.

I can't find a way to add ports to the vlan or do any work with the vlan?

any help?

thanks

you need to add vlans to the ports

Do the range command for the interfaces you want and then

Switchport access vlan 20

Yes, the same way that has been describe?
What IOS Version are you running the platform in GNS and are you getting any error messages?

that's what I was starting to write.

GNS 3 uses real cisco IOS files so if it works in the router IOS it works in GNS3.  You might want to try a different IOS with at least 12.4.
