It should work.

I run something similar at home. I have a 2wire combo unit (modem/router/AP) plugged into a OpenBSD (UNIX) based firewall/router, out to my Cisco 2900 XL with clients plugged in to the Cisco. I am using my 2wire for DHCP.

The only possible issue may be the 2900 XL. Reset it to factory defaults (VLAN 1 on all ports) so it's just a "basic" switch (ie: don't setup VLAN's) and it should work just fine.

Cool thanks, yeah when I powered it on for the first time I held the mode button in, and reset the password and set up the IP, mask, and gateway. Do I need to run a clear or delete command to clear any VLAN info or did that all clear when I booted holding the mode button in?


Thanks again.

To be honest, I'm not sure. I do everything from the command line......lol

Login to the switch and enter privileged mode.

The following command will tell you if there are any VLAN's:

show vlan

Also, if you do a dir command from the command prompt in privileged mode you would see a file named vlan.dat listed if there are VLAN's defined. You could get rid of this file using the "del" command

ex: del vlan.dat

Typically, when I wish to reset a switch to factory, I login, go to privileged mode and do the following:

del config.text (Enter) - deletes existing config
del vlan.dat (Enter) - deletes all VLAN's
reload (Enter) - reboots switch
