hi i have a cisco 837 router and i can access the sdm as usual.

note: i do not have an (adsl line) as im currently with virgin using their vmdg480 router that i have currently changed from default dhcp & set to (modem/enable) instead that provides me with public address details at my isa 2006/external nic.

note:  currently i have set my win 2003 server as 192.168.0.2/24 that enables me to ping the below address which also allows me access to the sdm gui:

config t
int eth0
ip address 192.168.0.1 255.255.255.0
no shut

config t
int fa1
description connected to win 2003 server as stated above
no ip address

config t
int fa2
ip address x.x.x.x x.x.x.x
ip addresses may not be configured on l2 links
no switchport
%invalid input detected at '^' marker

config t
description x-over cable connected to virgin vmdg480 router to internet
int fa4
no ip address

question 1.  can anyone tell me what i need to configure next in order for me to enable the lan ports fa1 & 4 as only offers: gre or loopback  ?

You can't put ip addresses directly on the FA ports, they are layer 2 only. Instead you need to create VLAN interfaces which do support layer 3 ip addresses.

For example:

inter vlan 2
ip add x.x.x.x y.y.y.y

inter fa2
switchport access vlan 2

hi

i have not managed to return back to my cisco 837 wan connectivity issue as yet but sometime next week i will do!!

question 1.  just for clarification, are you saying adding a 'vlan' on a port will change it from layer 2 to layer 3 and make it a 'wan' connection  ?

i will even add 'ip routing' which i am not sure is needed as assumed it was when 'routing protocols' were used

config t
int vlan 2 - invalid input

Hello again.

I did some research on the 830 series, because to be honest I haven't worked with one in years.
I'm afraid you are out of luck. The built-in switch doesn't support VLANs. It simply acts a dumb switch, using Ethernet0 for layer3 access. That means you can only configure a single internal network, apart from loopback interfaces.  This Q&A lists the differences between models, and you need a 850 or 870 series in order to get VLAN support in the switch.
