Cisco Router at Home...the Saga Continues
I was trying to use VLANs to setup the router on one Ethernet interface but it turns out that would not work unless I had a managed switch capable for trunking. I'd have to put that in front of the router to handle the two separate virtual LAN segments. My next option was to buy a second Ethernet interface card for the router. The WIC-1ENET seemed like a good choice. Doh! I wish I had done more research on it. Apparently, it does work with the Cisco 2612 routers - another $50 wasted on Ebay. Now it's back trying to look for the whole network module.
