Hi Andres, First of all apologies for a late response. To answer your question, yes I could ping 184.108.40.206 from the switch but obviously not from the PC. I have configured as you mentioned and it all works great. I can access the internet fine now. My next step is to be able to do inter-vlan routing between VLAN 10 and VLAN 20 for example. I know I'll need to setup a router for this as the 4948 switch for some reason will not do NATing although the commands are there. Will have a look at this next time. Thanks for your help.

Hi all, I'm trying to experiment with a Layer 3 switch (Cisco 4948-10GE). My aim is to set this switch as part of my home network. I'm trying to get routing working on it but seem to be hitting a wall somewhere. I've searched alot a round and cannot see what I am missing. My basic setup is a BT Home infinity (FTTH) hub (192.168.1.254) connected directly to my L3 switch port G1/1, Config for this is inteface GigabitEthernet1/1 description BT ADSL 300Mb no switchport ip address 192.168.1.10 255.255.255.0 ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 192.168.1.254 Gateway of last resort is 192.168.1.254 I also have 2 test VLANS 10 and 20. Config for these are: inteface vlan10 ip address 10.10.10.1 255.255.255.0 interface vlan20 ip address 220.127.116.11 255.255.255.0 Now if I have a port Gi1/10 in vlan 10 and connect a PC to it, I cannot access the Internet. although the default route is set as mentioned above. The PC picks up a 192.168.1.x address from the DHCP on the BT Infinity Hub. So could this be the problem? i.e. a 192.168.1.x device in VLAN 10 ? I can ping the gateway from the switch but not from the PC. I've not tried pinging a device from vlan 10 to vlan 20 as yet. I just wanted to sort out the Internet access first. Any advice guys?
