friends, i am new in this forum and i have seen the great resources in this forum. i have a network of one cisco 2911 router, three 48 ports unmanaged TP link switches and one 24 ports 2950 catalyst switch. one 48 ports tp link is connected to the 24 ports 2950 catalyst switch which is then linked to the gigabit ethernet port of the router. the other two 48 ports tp link are connected differently to the remaining two gigabitethernet ports of the router.

my tasks are;

1. to configure the gigabit interfaces of the router where the switches will  be connected

2. to configure the router to serve as a dhcp server for the three subnet



some questions i will need the answers to are;

1. do i need to configure the interfaces first?

2. in the dhcp command, do i need to create one network pool of IP or do i need to pool from each subnet? i am using network which i have subetted to,, and



please your valuable contribution and help is appreciated and if possible, the command needed to accomplish this task is appreciated. thank you

Welcome to TSF!


Commands can be found over at Cisco's web site.  Just look up your model router and then find the command set list.
