Please excuse me as I know this might be a really basic question but could sure use some assistance. I have 4 subnets setup on my router and trying to connect them to my 3 switches. I have the following cisco switches.they are connected to a soho gigabit switch and that goes to a cisco 1841 router. I am doing router on a stick/intervlan

1) 3560 uplink port 15
2) 2960 uplink port 15
3) 3750 uplink port 23

I was able to setup vlan1 and mapped an ip to this port on the 2960 switch. When I tried to setup the other vlans and map them to ip addresses they are down and even with no shutdown cannot get the protocol to come up. Do I need to have this mapped to an uplink for every vlan I have.,

Interface              IP-Address      OK? Method Status                Protocol
Vlan1             YES manual up                    up
Vlan20           YES manual up                    down
Vlan96           YES manual up                    down

My end goal is to get these vlans setup and working on the others

FastEthernet0              unassigned      YES manual up                    up  
FastEthernet0.32     YES manual up                    up  
FastEthernet0.96     YES manual up                    up  
FastEthernet0.128   YES manual up                    up  
FastEthernet0.160   YES manual up                    up  
FastEthernet1         YES manual up                    up
