802.1q Trunking

Change the trunking encapsulation on SW1’s inter-switch links from static ISL to static 802.1q.

SW1(config)#int range Fa0/13 - 21
SW1(config-if-range)#switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q 

 

Verify that SW2, SW3, & SW4 are negotiating 802.1q as the trunking encapsulation to SW1, and that SW1 is not negotiating 802.1q to SW2, SW3, and SW4
