Well, if the 2690 is anything like the 2900's, 2950's, and 3500's I've worked on you have to first go into privelaged mode, then global configuration mode. Once in global, you will want to assign the VLAN tag to the appropriate ports. Depending on the version of IOS in that unit you can do a "range" of ports using the range command (if IOS v12.1 or later....if 12.0, then you have to do it one interface at a time).

Here's a quick example:

[type in password and hit Enter]
config t
(example of range command)
int range fa0/1 0/8
switchport access VLAN # (where # is the VLAN tag)

(example without range command)
int fa0/1
switch acc VLAN #
int fa0/2
switch acc VLAN #

Note: You'll have to check the exact syntax of the "range" command as I don't have a 2950 handy to check it on. Once in config mode just go:

int range ?

for more info on the command.

I should add for clarity's sake, I used shortened commands. You don't have to type the whole word in. So "config t" is actually "configure terminal" and "int" is actually "interface". I typed out "switchport access" once and the short version "switch acc" later.

When in doubt, the command plus the question mark will give you info on the command.

Always a pleasure. Remember, when in doubt, use the question mark to get more info on a command.

Also, if you prefer to see the whole command word, you can use the tab key to complete a word.

So say you're logging in and about to enter privalaged mode type:

and hit [Tab]
and you will see:

Hi are you using any router or not. how is your
network? Without a router or L3 device VLAN's will not communicate each other.

I have a Layer 3 and a router as well in the network to function the VLAN.
