Hi Gaja,

The ports on the HWIC will always be layer2 switchports (all assigned to VLAN1 by default).

What you can then do, is create a vlan1 interface where you can configure all the layer 3 informations (ip address, HSRP, etc).

Later on, if you need to have another port on that module in a different subnet, you just create an additional layer2 vlan in the vlan database, then configure the port to be in that vlan. After than you can create a Layer3 VLAN interface for that new VLAN.

Here's an example with VLAN2:

Router#vlan database

router(vlan)#vlan 2    (create vlan2)

VLAN 2 added:

    Name: VLAN0002

router(vlan)#exit

APPLY completed.

Exiting....

Router# sh vlan-switch -> will show active layer2 vlans

Router#conf t

Router(config)#int fa0/0/1

Router(config-if)#switchport  access vlan 2

Router(config-if)#no shut

Router(config)# interface Vlan2

Router(config-if)# ip address x.x.x.x y.y.y.y

Router(config-if)#no shut

Router(config)#end

Router#wr

HTH
