Tag Native VLAN on Cisco 2801

Hi

We have two Cisco 2801 that connects two offices.

We where running the traffic over serial interface but now we got a new provider of the comunication line. They could only deliver a line with TCP/IP so we had to change to fast ethernet on both routers.

They say that we have to tag the native VLAN 1 traffic over the line.
Must we use Trunks or Subinterfaces or what?

We have tried to change the configuration with no success.

How do we set this up correctly ?

The cisco 2801 is running 12.4(16a).

If they say you should tag vlan 1 then use sub-interfaces

Check your device can support the configurations below; Its the latter config you need to support


Traffic sent across VLAN1 below is NOT tagged

interface FastEthernet0/0.1
 encapsulation dot1Q 1 native



Traffic sent across VLAN1 below is tagged

interface FastEthernet0/0.1
 encapsulation dot1Q 1

The router adds native by itself when we enter the command encapsulation dot1Q 1.
We can't see any other commands in the running-config that have any effect on this.

Any ideas?

I thought you might get that behaviour - I'm afraid you may not be able to send tagged frames out on VLAN 1

However on a switch such as the 3550 you can achieve this by the command "vlan dot1q tag native"

So can you introduce a switch between the router and the service provider?

Before proceeding further I would ask the SP some questions?

Why do they require data on VLAN 1 to be sent tagged? Could they not present the service to you on any other VLAN such as VLAN2 (tagged)? [ Reason: your equipment doesn't support sending tagged frames on VLAN1]

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

The SP said that because of the hardware platform in one of the locations they had to have tagged traffic thru the line. We can't argue with them on that.
We will look into new routers or switches.

Thanks for the help.
