    You can always get pre-made cross-over cables

    hxxp://cgi.ebay.com.au/UTP-Voice-data-T1-E1-Crossover-back-to-back-Cable-5FT-/230416770484?cmd=ViewItem&pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&ha sh=item35a5e8e5b4

    They work fine. Always get extra though, I bought 4 and 1 is temperamental.

    I have to agree. Sweet little tool. I'll have to pick one up just to try it out.

    Coincidentally, I was listening to Packet Pushers' podcast today (2nd or 3rd episode) and they mentioned this tool. Then I went to Jeremy Ciaora's blog and he had an article on it. That was so weird that a day or so after discovering this tool, these other places were talking about them. Still cool... I'm ordering mine today!!!

    I snagged one of those for my toolbag from ThinkGeek.com a month or so ago. It's cool but honestly, since most laptops and newer switches do auto-MDIX, the only thing of use is the T1 x-over which isn't used much and if needed, I would just make a cable (same with a loopback plug) since it's too expensive to leave the adapter behind! Would be nice for lab use if someone didn't want to make their own cables.

    Default More questions please

    Got myself some 2811 routers but they didn't come with rack mount kits. Can anyone that has a 2801 and a 2811 confirm whether the rackmount kits are identical please? eBay sellers use generic pics so I can't be sure and the price difference is silly. $7 vs 37 !!

    One more question. Are the VWIC-1MFT-T1-DIR cards useful for our labs or should I stick to the non-DIR versions please?

    Thanks again.

    Brackets are different between the 2 models.

    “DI” should be fine (though you aren’t really tested on the added drop and insert function)
    “DIR” model is NO GOOD – these only work in some really old wireless edge routers

    Hmmm, I know that Cisco's year end is July 31st, and they usually slow to a crawl shortly after re-stocking distributors. Hopefully they aren't back ordered as I'm waiting on a couple of 2800s for a project @ work (ordered 2 weeks ago). I should probably check on that.

    Default How to run T1 and E1 controllers simultaneously

    Almost got my lab gear together and now I just ran into something I hadn't thought of. How can a 2811 run both T1 and E1 cards simultaneously if you can only specify one isdn frame-switch type in global?

    I assume you just pick a type and use it for all the controllers?

    TIA

    You also have the option of setting ISDN switch-type on the individual D channels – which I believe will override the global setting (if set). If using a VWIC2-2MFT-T1/E1 which supports T1 and E1 both ports have to be the same – but you are fine across multiple VWICs.

    RT2851(config)#interface Serial0/0/1:23
    RT2851(config-if)#isdn switch-type ?

    primary-dms100 Northern Telecom DMS-100 switch type for the U.S.
    primary-net5 NET5 switch type for UK, Europe, Asia and Australia
    primary-ni National ISDN Switch type for the U.S.
    primary-ni2c The Cisco NAS-SC switchtype based on NI2C.

    I'm not sure if you ever noticed but you mislabeled the Frame Relay device in your Visio. It's a 3640, correct? Great job on your diagram and rack.

    Just noticed this – thanks! Yeah, it’s kind of a pet peeve of mine.

    Here's what my typical branch office setups look like:

    Yeah, I hear ya. My work lab is completely dynamic. For that I use 1U cable management units with hinged covers - that way I can just slap the wires in there an not see them.
