Using a Cisco 2620 at home - Page 2

post #11 of 30
You only have one Ethernet connection. If you want to connect your 2600 router to a Switch and your ISP customer premiss router via Ethernet you'll need a device that has two Ethernet interfaces.

Sell the 2600 and pick up a Cisco 831 or 851 if you're looking for a cheap multi Ethernet enabled Cisco IOS based router for a little Friday night fun.

I read that you can upgrade the flash and flash a different ios to get NM-1FE-TX compatible with the 2621. Now I have the 2620. What would be the difference?
post #13 of 30
This will have EVERYTHING required to answer your questions - differences between the 2620 and 2621 and the Supported 2600 series Ethernet modules. Which I didn't think were supported but apparently are..

Good luck..

I appreciate your help but that had nothing on the 2621, just the 2621xm. Both the 2621 and 2621xm have two fa from what I can see. I'm just curious if I could flash it with a different model's ios to be able to use WIC modules

2620 and 2621 are the same except for :
2620 = 1 fast ethernet port
2621 = 2 fast ethernet ports

In order to use your T1 card you would either need a T1 line coming in or do a back to back T1 with another router.

As stated, ethernet WIC are not supported.
NM-1E or as such should function correctly, if you need another ethernet interface.

The nm-1e doesn't have an ethernet port on it. just two bays for extra moduls

Please do some research before making claims.

NM-2W would be for 2 WICS, hence the W
NM-1E would be for 1 Ethernet interface.
NM-1E1R2W has 1 Ethernet, 1 Token Ring, 2 WIC

Etc, etc.

IIRC the 2600 non-xm do not support the modules with FE interfaces on them.

Edit:
An alternative you may be able to do is use subinterfaces on the router's FE interface and segregate your traffic on the switch. Have a separate VLAN and switch port going to your cable modem, use a .1q VLAN trunk to the router and specify the modem VLAN subinterface as nat outside, etc.

I'm not sure who to believe anymore! Only kidding. I have a 2621 NON XM and I was able to get a fast ethernet card working no problem. Cisco may not support it but I was able to get it to boot up and recognize that it was there. I'm using a NM-1FE-TX and it works perfectly.

Nice.
I have a NM-2FE2W that refuses to work in my 2621 that I'm using for a WAN gateway but functions just fine in the 3660.

/shrug.

this would not be safe.
