Basically, I have a Cisco 2610 router with no modular cards installed. It only has the Ethernet, Console, and Aux ports. I want to be able to add it to my current network, but I'm not sure if I can use the AUX as a WAN/Uplink port and then use the Ethernet to connect to a Switch.
Before I get bombarded with the "Do you know what this is for?" questions, Yes, I know what a Cisco 2610 is for, and I'm Network+ certified. My question is specific to Cisco Routers only - not the methods used in networking.
All I'm asking is this - Can I use the AUX port as a WAN/Uplink port? If not, which modular card do I need to give this thing simply one additional Ethernet port? I don't need it to be CSU/DSU or T1 enabled, as there is already a central router in place providing my network with NAT and and internet connection. I simply need it to be connected to a port on my current router and in turn provide an additional subnet to another switch that will be connected to the other port to isolate a network segment.
Any information helping me will be greatly appreciated.
