I've been tasked with installing our new Internet router. I have a stand-alone WS-C3750-24P-L with LAN base. I need a routed port to establish connection with our ISP. I've purchased IP Base licensing and applied it, and copied the ipbase iOS to flash, but I get "Error: hardware not supported by firmware. Try loading never software instead." on boot.
Is my process faulty? Am I not understanding the requirements necessary for routed ports? Or do I simply need a newer iOS version? I'm using 122-58.SE1.
Sorry for the basic question, and thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
Are you sure that you loaded the right IOS (hopefully you didn't upgrade your switch with an iOS ... )? In the title you write about an 3750X, but in the text you mention a (to my knowledge non-existent) non-X model. Please show the exact filename that you downloaded and also a "show version".
And the 3750-X with IPBase supports routed ports.
